This shape has some universal appeal to it.  Whenever you use this shape I'm reminded of elongated teardrops like you would see in a slow motion video.  I could see this on one of your wife's solid green kumihimo cords.

Wow, that one is beautiful, Frank!  The green is so pure in that stone.  I'm not the biggest "green" fan, but I like that one!

The green is translucent vesuvianite according to x-ray diffraction testing.

Yes and it has that zippery line right down the middle.  It's pretty!
