Rendering simulating amethyst quartz


Well, I saw a morning glory flower while going home and I decided to try to design something with a similar symmetry. This is the result.

It is designed for quartz, I test-cut a stone in citrine and it's quite pretty and similar to the rendering.

It is designed for quartz, but it should work well for also higher RI's. Cutting should be easy if some attention is paid to some tiers that will cut very fast...
