The software exports a set of intersected planes (which are used here) 
/and/ a set of unioned cylinders representing the ribs. Vertice info can 
be derived from those last, obviously. I have not looked seriously at 
that part of the code.

Oh yes indeed. A lot of streamlining can be made on the code. Not sure 
if I want to go all that way though, but I shall post a scene file when 
I have cleaned up the whole mess. For the time being I am content with 
trying to obtain as 'realistic' a crystal as possible.
