    I thought this was a fascinating formation of glass. It's essentially a "droplet" of glass that is formed by dropping a droplet of molten glass into a cooling font of water. It's a collection of non-chaotic glass that attempts to cool in various ways to the effect of tension all over its structure.

    You can hit the head of the bead as hard as you want and it will not break, but if you so much as nick the tail end of it even slightly, it'll cause a chain reaction which will destroy the whole drop instantly.
