Physically-Correct Gems And Precious Stones Shaders

by ddesign in Models

Welcome to the physically based shading in Cycles, I hope you will find your new materials to be the secret weapon to stunningly realistic renderings!

Gem materials have each their own absorption and/or light dispersion, this is especially true for diamond which have a very charateristic refraction pattern. You can alter the "purity" of the gem by dialing in the amount of absorption and its colour.

Jade material uses a complex SSS/reflection setup, allowing you to tweak the overall polishing

Studio setup included, HDRI from www.hdrihaven.com released as CC0
