  • Looking up at her husband, who had re-placed her with a beautiful young girl, and gifted that girl with a pendant which made her own firedim earrings look dowdy by comparison.

    Wizard and Glass

  • Some of the women wore jewelry (though nothing so expensive as sai Thorin's firedim earrings), and few looked as if they'd missed many meals, but they also wore clothes Roland recognized: the long, round-collared dresses, usually with the lace fringe of a colored underskirt showing below the hem, the dark shoes with low heels, the snoods (most sparkling with gem-dust, as those of Olive and Coral Thorin had been).

    Wizard and Glass

  • A ring on one of them, with a jewel set into it that might have been a ruby or a firedim or a piece of trumpery trash.

  • Apparently some kind of stone.

    "To the north were the mines themselves: dangerous, undershored scratch drifts that went down fifty feet or so and then spread like fingers clutching for gold and silver and copper and the occasional nest of firedims. From the outside they were just holes punched into the bare and rocky earth, holes like staring eyes, each with its own pile of till and scrapings beside the adit." From Wizard and Glass by Stephen King
