|Color||Pearlescent white and yellow|
|Breed specific action||None|
This is a reaction to the mildy toxic oil the Turpentines are covered with, as well as the gelatinous goo and oily secretions which Waterhorses and Albinos are respectively covered with. The Luminas remove their scales in order to get rid of the oil or goo, so their color changes to reflect their scaleless body. (As the Luminas' description states that, "if one of their scales has so much as a scratch or a defect, they'll remove it. Luckily, their scales grow back quickly, and each new growth is more beautiful than the last.")
Bred eggs of a Lumina x Turpentine/Waterhorse/Albino couple are not affected by this and hatch as ordinary Luminas.
Official Dragon Descriptions Edit
"This egg shines brightly in the sunlight."
"Aww... It's a cute baby dragon. It always seems to be picking over its scales."
"Aww... It's a cute baby dragon. It always seems to be picking over its scales. And look! It's grown its wings! It must be close to maturing."
"Lumina Dragons received their names from their highly reflective scales, which—at times—seem to glow. They are vain, always strutting about and preening incessantly; if one of their scales has so much as a scratch or a defect, they'll remove it. Luckily, their scales grow back quickly, and each new growth is more beautiful than the last. These narcissistic dragons live in small groups and prefer to surround themselves with beauty. The females guard their territory and eggs while the males search for vegetation to eat."

Artist information Edit
Corteo mentioned in this forum post that:
The male Lumina was originally going to be my Christmas dragon submission (Wrapping Paper) until I decided I didn't want to try for the holiday and decided to save them for a normal release.
After the tan form of the Luminas was discovered, Corteo posted here saying:
Just wanted to thank the users for this awesome idea with posts like this http://forums.dragcave.net/index.php?showtopic=136788&view=findpost&p=6277627 xD
Also, a big thank you to TJ for adding this in.
Also, I didn't say this, but don't stop playing around with stuff yet
About the Luminas also reacting to the harmless goo of the Waterhorses, Corteo stated on this post, that:
Well the Luminas don't react to the acid in the Turp oil, they just shed because they find it digusting and detracting from their beauty. :)
