    First found and named "Gingoke" in 1929 by Eizaburo Hoshino who was a great contributor to the improvement of Nishikigoi.
    Kinginrin means "golden, silvery scale" and refers to the golden scales over Hi and silvery ones over sumi or white areas.
    These scales are divided into 2 types:
    "Pearl Ginrin" = lumpy, sparkling deposits
    "Tsubu Gin" - which is broken into a further three sub groups

    1. Beta Gin - fully covered scales
    2. Kado Gin - only on the edge of the scale
    3. Diamond Gin rin - so named because of its brilliance in comparison to its namesake

    Friendship is like peeing on yourself: everyone can see it, but only you get the warm feeling that it brings.
