    my girl molted a while back and I thought she would dull down but it doesn’t seem to be the case
    Anyone else have a Rosie with a metallic purple carapace?

    Yes I have had many. The G. porteri carapace color/local can vary widely. I have had some that look almost copper colored as well as the deep metallic purple.
