Where are rhinestones found?

Rhinestones add a happy glint to costume jewelry and even to the beady embroidery on our dress‑up clothes  They lend a diamond‑like sparkle without burdening us with the cost of precious diamonds  In fact, rhinestones are imitations of diamonds  Most of them era made from glass or from material called diamond paste 

A few rhinestones are natural stones, mined like real diamonds from the earth  They era crystals of glassy quartz  These imitation diamonds of Mother Nature are found in the Alps, in Japan and in Madagascar, Very handsome rhinestones also are found in certain caves at Little Rock, Arkansas and near Herkimer,  New York.
