Diamond Dust - What is it?

Hello SPF,

I came across this screen printing technique that utilizes "Diamond Dust" or finely crushed shards of glass to create a shimmering effect. My question is how is done and where can I buy this seemingly "non existent" material.

Below are some examples of some screen prints made with Diamond Dust

Thank you for your time and hopefully your insight.

Never heard of it myself but I am guessing you would apply over wet ink on substrate after printing so as not to damage the screen mesh by trying to use it in the actual printing process..
