Here's a pic of mine from about 6 months ago. It's about 3 X size and flourescent red like Cable Guy's now (btw, nice ones, CableGuy). Scolymias are awesome.

Dark greens are the most common and are the cheapest. The red, purples, oranges,ect are harder to find and so the price goes up. I paid 150 for red and green an 90 for a purple and only 40 for a green.

Jm86, Ok I give up? where is the orange?
I lucked out on my Scoly ( plus its pretty young-read:SMALL) the clerk at Pet-O-Rama didn't know anything about the corals in the saltwater part of the store. I now & the have a little flash of guilt, but its fleeting.
Scolys are one of my favorite corals..

The darker parts at the top of the outer section and around the outer edge (that u can see at the bottom of the pic) also around the mouth. You cant c the color difference in the pic just the difference in shades because of the VHO lighting in my tank. Its not flourescent orange more like some of the aussies, its a deep red orange. Its hard to get a pic with accurate coloring because there's a lot of blue light over the tank.

All Three Scolly's came from the LFS in Saskatoon, SK. They are not a cheap coral but I think they are well worth it!

There's only 1 saltwater specialty shop here, it's called Bayside Corals. Lots of really nice pieces, they really do a good job bringing in the more unique stuff.

Josee - you have a scolymia.

As a rough visual guide, the scolys have sort of concentric rings, where as cynarinas have segments pointing inwards.
This is a cynarina
