Dr. Furness did not get the native name for this figure, so I have called it "Diamonds." It is a Natik figure obtained from "Emily," the native who taught Dr. Furness the "Catch."
The methods which lead to the final extension of this figure (the Third and Fourth movements) are similar to those in the preceding figure ("One Chief"), but all the other movements are new. At first sight, the opening movement appears to be a difficult and elaborate way of putting loops on the little fingers and wrists, but it is really the easiest and most direct method, not only of getting the loops, but also of making the strings cross one another in the way required for the subsequent success of the figure. In only one other figure (the "Pygmy Diamonds") are the loops dropped from the wrists, and caught, while dropping, upon the thumbs.
