Sparkle (a Jewel?)

I had an idea. It came to me watching the dawn in a drop of dew. I tried it. It worked! Now what? I can see an awful lot of abuses for this effect.

The artist/designer sets the individual sparkles. Each has a position, size, color, duration and frequency. It's easy to drop a few sparkles onto a graphic. Word to the wise: It's hard to stop fussing with them to get them just right.
