注释
Although rhinestones are inseparably associated with the costumes of country and western singers and Las Vegas showgirls, the word originally had European associations. The Rhine in rhinestone is the Rhine River, and rhinestone is a translation into English of the French phrase caillou du Rhin. Originally a rhinestone was a kind of rock crystal that was found in or near the Rhine and given a fancy name, as have other types of rock crystal such as Cornish diamond. Such stones could be made to imitate diamonds; hence the name rhinestone was applied to artificial gems made from paste, glass, or gem quartz. Rhinestones have spread far beyond the Rhine, becoming a central ingredient of certain aspects of Americana. Cornish diamonds have not shared the same fate.
虽然莱茵石与乡村服装,西部歌手及拉斯维加斯的歌舞女郎联系紧密,但这个单词最初与欧洲有联系。单词rhinestong(莱茵石) 中的Rhine指莱茵河, 而rhinestone 是由法语短语 caillou du Rhin 翻译成英语的。 莱茵石最初是一种在莱茵河中或附近发现的天然透明石英石,并如同其它类型天然透明石英石,例如康沃尔钻石那样被赋予了一个新奇的名字。这样的石头能被用来仿造钻石;因而名称rhinestone(莱茵石) 便用于由含铅玻璃、玻璃或宝石石英制成的人造宝石。 莱茵石已遍及莱茵河以外,成为美国某些外观的重要组成部分。而康沃尔钻石则没有同样的命运
