    I just acquired this and found it to be very unusual. I'm wondering if someone could help me with what these stones are called. Interspersed with the faceted stones are 3 disc shaped ones. Just wondering if there's a name for these. I know there's a term for almost everything ;) I'm trying to gain knowledge! Thanks!!

      What a lovely set!
      The beads that look like little pyramids bottom to bottom are called “bi- cones”. I fell in love with these beads when I bought my Hobe’ set :) The flat ones, ( you said it) collectors call “disks” or “flying saucers”.

      Beautiful colour, set — just a great blue. Another name for the flying saucers is rivoli stones.

      I agree with Daisy!
      That is the “technical term”, where as disks and flying saucers are “nicknames” by collectors.
      Bi-cones are also the correct technical term.
      Thanks Leanne for bringing the correct term to light :)
