Weird discoloration

I thought I’d ask if anyone knew what causes this? It’s semi iridescent on the shiny side in the light-especially sunlight. Under the regular lighting it just looks shiny/dull.

@Legalinmaine - good question.
Very much a noob and have similar on one of my plants…
Look forward to the feedback from the helpful pro’s on the forum - hopefully it is simple something to do with the strain/genetics being grown?

Awkward to make out with LEDs on can you please take pics under normal light or turn of LEDs for a minute and just use camera flash
also the more info given the better people can help

Plant strain is sour diesel.
So that first photo was under sunlight, the color should be correct.
It’s also a new issue…actually the only issue besides a slight low ph a few weeks ago. It’s only on those couple, maybe three leaves.
Plant is healthy as far as I can tell. No over/under nutrient problems anyway.

Also, (unrelated) I snapped a stem two days ago and instantly taped it back together with medical tape. It was only connected by a thread of outer skin, the whole inner stem was severed. I Thought I’d lose it but it’s bounced back pretty fast. Here’s a photo of it yesterday and today, hopefully it helps some people that have had this problem! I have misted it with water a couple times.
