Vitreous word nerd via lawhimsyVitreous – even the word has a sort of glass like luster to it. Perhaps it’s just me, but it seems to have a certain glossy shine to it when it’s written or spoken aloud. Vitreous is a word I’ve come across in several places, most notably in geology when it’s referring to rocks and minerals that have a vitreous property to them (quartz, tourmaline, and obsidian a examples of vitreous stones.). As you well know I tend to wax poetic about anything and everything and vitreous flows so delightfully along with that sort of mindset…
