The Bauhinia double-lobed leaf is similar in shape to a heart or a butterfly. A typical leaf is 7 to 10 centimetres (2.8 to 3.9 in) long and 10 to 13 centimetres (3.9 to 5.1 in) wide, with a deep cleft dividing the apex. In Hong Kong the leaf is known as the "clever leaf" (聰明葉), and is regarded as a symbol of wisdom. Some people use the leaves to make bookmarks in the hope that they will bring them good luck in their studies.
5 stars review from Darr
Very nice. I'm using these for what most would consider a weird art (or craft) project, but they work great for me. Thanks!
Beautiful coins! They made a great gift for my dad who grows and crossbreeds orchids :) He is impossible to buy for - but now he has a mini orchid coin collection! (This one is everyone in the family's favourite! So pretty and shiny!)
Arrived on time with a nice case and minimal packaging!
