Project Agate - Sequential render study from rough to tumbled, to cut and polished and finally a sliced and polished to finish with.

Modelled with Blender 2.78a
Materials created with KS MatGraph and one 3rd party texture from an unknown person so can't give credit
1 Hour render time
Camera set as Nikon 110mm/f5.6

Thanks Eric - Tumbled agate won't take too long in coming (famous last words)

Will add it to the Cloud Library if you want to play with it Chad :)

Thanks Nico - They did take a bit of time to get them looking about right

Sweet additions, Martin. I gotta say I really like that Acanthite and Calcite stone. Looks superb!

Same settings as before other than a change in the materials and render-time which had to be extended to two hours. All materials this time were constructed using KeyShot Procedurals

Tumbled and talc polished agates can look like candies - Just don't try crunching into one :)

Low grade pressure fractured Agate with Quartz inclusions cut and polished. I should have spent more time with the modelling to create a better geode as the outer crust should intrude into the interior and wouldn't have a clean edge as depicted here.

Thanks go to Eric for his crackled textures that I am sure are going to come in very handy soon.
