I know some things are enabled by default, but I like to include all the options

True that, but +r1 is faster and better than no antialiasing at all, imo. (It
lends a softer look to the rendering.)

Thanks, Alain. I originally used fade_color and supporting statements, but the
color was becoming too saturated. So I cheaped out instead, which is
regrettable. Because by doing so, I only managed to simulate surface dyes, which
are highly frowned upon in the mineral community ;)
