This plant was grown from leaves purchased from a hobby grower. The flowers are gorgeous, but nothing like the one from Optimara. The lilac flowers lead me to believe it is actually Fluorite. It could be the picture on the Optimara website is misleading, and people have been trying to match their plants to the very poor photos.
