So, to me, it still looks a bit - murky.  Like I'm viewing the render through a
haze or slightly out of focus.

I'm not sure if it's the render settings, the lighting, or the contribution of
the textured ground plane, or what.  I just get the impression that I should be
seeing some crisp(er) edges on the front of the crystal, and instead they are
kind of muddled / blended in with the body of the crystal.

I like the bubbles - I know what you're trying to accomplish there.  Perhaps -
fewer? Slightly more spread out?
This would definitely be a great method for making a realistic ice cube with the
frozen air bubbles inside...

I would be interested in seeing a clean, crisp, clear or opaque version, which
ought to render very quickly, and also - one employing the new granite material!
 :D

This has also got me wanting to see an amethyst, with the clear-to-purple color
gradient.
