This four-leaf clover consists of four coplanar circles. Each circle is externally tangent to two others, as shown. The two smaller circles are congruent, and the two larger circles are congruent. A square is constructed such that each of its four vertices is also the center of one of the four circles. Suppose the area of the square is 6 1/4 in2, and the combined area of the four circular leaves of the clover is 6 1/2ð in2. What is the positive difference between the radius of a large circular leaf and the radius of a small circular leaf? Express your answer as a common fraction.
