  Figure skating - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Figure skating is an ice skating sporting event where individuals, mixed couples, or groups perform spins, jumps, and other "moves" on the ice, often to music.
Compulsory figures, in which skaters use their blades to draw circles, figure 8s, and similar shapes in ice, and are judged on the accuracy and clarity of the figures and the cleanness and exact placement of the various turns on the circles.
Compulsory figures formerly accounted for up to 60% of the score in singles figure skating, which meant that skaters who could build up a big lead in figures could win competitions even if they were mediocre free skaters.

Figure may be defined as the pattern produced on a wood surface by annual growth layers, rays, and knots; by irregular coloration; and by deviations from straight, regular grain.

Figure in these minerals is characterized by a moving light either in the form of a broad or narrow band or in the form of a "star." This phenomenon in gemstones is called “chatoyancy,” referring to the eye of a cat.
