Hi
I need your help. I want to get a relistic diamond surface.
The only thing that I know is that Refraction index must be 2.417.
Should I set surface to double sided, or I must use surface in surface out technique(glass in glass out).
Colour, Diffuse, Specular, Glossiness, Reflection, Transparency - ?.

Hey Troya. You don't want to have the surface set to double-sided. You'll want to copy the geometry of your diamond into another layer, flip it, and then paste it back with a different material(generally, "air"). Make Air's refraction 1.0, and everything else to 0.

Sorry for the rushed answer, but I hope this helps for now. :)
