A challenging standardized test geometry problem

[If you thought the last two problems in the series were too easy, this might be more your speed.]

Circle 1 and Circle 2 both have radius 2. Each passes through the center of the other. Find the area of the rhombus formed by the two points of intersection (A and B) and the centers of each circle (C1 and C2).
