Teardrop fractals are a subset of grouped element fractals, independently discovered by myself and R. William Gosper. Teardrop fractals are derivable from cyclically symmetric fractals with a central element. This page covers those teardrop fractals derived from the Koch snowflake. Like all other teardrop fractals, these tile the plane.

Sources: The first was reverse engineered from an image presented by R. William Gosper. The remainder were found by a systematic search for teardrop derivatives of the Koch Snowflake.
