Scientific name: Cyprinid carpio
The Kinginrin Koi group contains all Koi, no matter which variety or class, which display a certain amount of glimmer on each scale. The sparkle gives the Koi either a gold (Kin) or silver (Gin) effect, depending on the color that lies underneath. There are three different types of Kingrinrin. The first and most common type is Diamond Ginrin. It shows a rather unstructured glimmering effect on the entire surface of the scale. The second type is Kadogin, which has a subtle lustre only at the edges of the scales. The third is the Pearl Ginrin Koi, which looks like a small pearl has been carefully placed within the centre of each scale.
