Blue Quartz Material
« on: November 08, 2014, 06:44:31 am »
Not sure if my last post work.

Im looking to create this type of material in Keyshot but have no idea how to create the reflective parts behind the blue.

Any help would be much appreciated!



Thanks

Luke

The reflective parts behind the blue is likely just the metal surface that these gems have been inset into. So make a somewhat grinded out shiny metal surface behind the gem, 2 different pieces of geometry.
