vignette

This week's prompt is:
jewel

Anyone can join, with a 50-word vignette in the comments. Your vignette does not have to include the prompt term.

My effort:

In the open area, the lights, in all their colors, swarmed over the fog there, making the thing look like an opal.

An ugly, cut-rate opal, thought Tristan, bitterly. All cloudy and flawed. The sort of thing that was not set in jewelry but sold in loose handfuls as trinkets.
