  • Example: "Zuleika's pincushion, a-bristle with new pins, lay on the dimity-flounced toilet-table, and round it stood a multitude of multiform glass vessels, domed, all of them, with dull gold, on which Z. D., in zianites and diamonds, was encrusted." - Zuleika Dobson, by Max Beerbohm.

    As far as I know, Beerbohm made up this word. It appears to mean some sort of precious stone.
