Difference between big and small metal flake

So I'm getting a paint job and the guy asked me if I wanted small flake or big flake. I really don't know the difference so if anyone knows the difference or what I should go with please lmk. Or post pics up so I can get an idea. Btw I'm painting my car midnight purple pearl. Thanks!

Re: Difference between big and small metal flake

I'd say go small, but now that I think about it, I can't say Ive EVER seen a car with large flakes...it certainly would be different.
