Tort ID

Hello - I am hoping someone can shed some light on the type of Tort I have here. Was sold to me as Cali Tort from a local reefer, but looks very different from another Cali tort I have , and the typical Cali torts you see online
It has a metallic green base which transitions into pink then purple stalks, which have a little greenish rim. Blue/Purple polyps
This is an unedited picture top down with radions set to 12k


Funny thing - this is my favorite coral now but at one point, 6 month ago, I considered tossing the frag in the garbage...
It looked drab as drab can get


Thanks for your help!

Could it be "Mother of Pearl" Tortuosa?
