I've seen the metallic mermaid in person and it is gorgeous! It is a very chocolate brown with a green iridescence and little green sparkles when the light hits it. My only concern is how this special leather will hold up. In the thread discussing problems, some people have said that some of the metallic leathers have worn off with wear. It is beautiful, but I'm not sure if I'll go for it or buy a black Sasha. Also, I already bought the metallic snake Ava so I have to be god for a while!
