I've had cellophones/butterflies with the sheen of blue. My one boy, Juniper could've been a butterfly but was missing the coloring on the dorsal then of course his sheen turned into actual blue

iridescence is a gene passed down from parents and means just that. It is that pearly, blacklight, bright violet sheen over the actual coloring. Its like dragons scaling just clear and iridescent. It's not excluded to one coloring pattern or type of betta, any combination can have a marble look to it. Dreamsicle is a cute name! I'm kinda jelly about him. Orange is a rare color to come by.
