How to use "Virescence" in context?

Virescence is the marvelous optical property exhibited by a substance when it is exposed to light. Most substances emit white light when light is shone on them, but some substances (such as diamond) emit bluish or violet light when light shines on them. This happens because of the way the light is bounced off of the substance's surface.
