It is very uncommon to find satisfying examples of these - often the colors are lacking or uneven. Typically with bi-colors, you see at least one of the hues be the relatively unattractive brown that is common with these. To have the two most recognizable colors for the species is ideal - as is the case here. Good size and, while not a perfect 50/50 split, it is quite close and has a strong visual appeal. These are rare so nice.
