A theme day! Everybody loves a theme day! Especially a writer who needs some structure to make sure she posts to her blog on a semi-regular basis. Also, there has to be some way of fighting back against all of the ugly words out there these days. (Selfie, I am pointing my finger at you.)
So, from now on, Wednesdays are devoted to beautiful words you may not yet know. Here's the first one...

noun 2. a gemstone with a changeable lustre.
