I is for ‘iridescent’

I love, love, LOVE this word!

My MacbookPro dictionary gives ‘iridescent’ this meaning:

‘luminous colours that seem to change when seen from different angles’. And it’s descended from Latin, where ‘irid’ means ‘rainbow’.

(That’s also how the silvery-white metal, iridium, got its name…)

How cool is that, huh?!

Have a great day, dear Reader!

    1. And may the rainbow infuse your every minute, John – may your every action, your every word, shimmer and effulge brightness and luminescence šŸ˜€
