Hello, this is the last of the turquoise series for now ,Pendant was modeled in Cinema 4-D and rendered with AR3 . For those that are interested in jewelry design their are several grades of turquoise this one is "Ajax Natural turquoise" infused with copper and other natural minerals . Turquoise that is so hard and beautiful that it is simply mined, cut, polished and set into a piece of jewelry or carved into a fetish or sculpture. Less than 3% of all the turquoise on the market worldwide is natural.

Thank you for the wonderful comments on this , i do enjoy modeling these. And Mark at first i was using a procedural technique but was unhappy with the outcome , I later used a couple of aging texture maps then apply/paint it on with several layers in Body Paint.
