Yeah, I probably spoke too soon-- such voids would not produce the same visual
effect as your own method of creating voids with actual geometry.

Also, it occurred to me that any fractures or cleavage planes in a crystal would
need to have some partial reflectivity (if I understand the concept of such
planes). Thin slices of interior media certainly cannot do that. :-(
BTW, thanks for the link to Jaime's crystals; I will take a look at his examples
