sure povray does that ... check out ior to characterize the interior of 
your material. have a look in the docs Reference->Scene File 
Extras->Include Files you'll see ior mentioned in a couple of places. 
look in glass.inc and you'll see how to put together a material 
definition. transmit and filter in pigment is worth looking at...povray 
has subsurface light transport too
