I have 3 of these highly unique aloes from Saudii Arabia. They are very light colored (yellow lime green) with a very shiny surface that reflects light. This is probably the shiniest leaf aloe I have seen.

I haven't seen the flower. They are all single stem so far. Largest is over 2 feet in diameter and as tall.
