How to use "Glint" in context?

When we think of "glint" we might imagine a piece of jewelry radiating light. But glint can also refer to the twinkle of a new idea or the sparkle in someone's eye. In the physical world, glint is often seen when a polished object reflects light. This makes it look as if the object is a single, smooth piece of metal. But when we look closely, we can see that the surface of the object is actually divided into tiny, almost imperceptible points. This is why objects with a high degree of glint look more like jewels than metal.
