That is not like mine. Much different. The spines on mine are arrow straight,never wavy. And the pads are also at most half that size. Plus- that one shows very little purple.

I might not know what it is..but I gave away a couple to Cacti collectors who are friends of a cousin. They said its their favorite plant now. Lots of color.

Some clones exhibit more purple than others. Growing conditions can also affect the size of the pads. But as for the arrow straight spines, That might indicate a different species. Do you have any photos of the one you are referring to?

Bay Area is probably referring to the 2 photos he posted under the same name, Phil. http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/showimage/241317/

And you are right, just a great color!!
