Hi folks,

Ben from UnchartedX has just posted the stl file from a professional
metrological scan of a pre-dynastic rose quartz vase.

You can view the video and the one that precedes it to gain an appreciation of
exactly what this represents.

From a purely POV-Ray perspective, it would be great to get this rendered with
Thomas deGroot's Granite_21 textures, and maybe even post the results on YT and
other sites to show the capabilities of POV-Ray with regard to texture, finish,
normal, lighting, and sub-surface light transport.

The file is 44.6 MB, and it would be great if someone could convert it to a mesh
{} or preferably mesh2 {} object.  You could likely post it on a free
file-hosting service for the next 30 days like I did with F. Lohmueller's
(partial) web archive.
