WIP - Solar Panel Texture

Posted this in WIP forum, but thought i'd also share it here since I'm doing everything in C4D.

Trying to figure out how to create a solar panel texture that has those nice deep iridecence effects as you look at it from different angles. I'm not talking about that shattered crystal pattern though. The newer panels are a solid crystal with small lines going through it, but as you look at it from different angles, you can see deep blues where light isn't reflecting, and iridescent bright blues where it is. Here's some renders from my first pass at it. I've also included the project files for anyone else to mess with and see if they can get a better result than me. C4D and ORBX files included. Would love your feedback and suggestions on this! Thanks.

You're welcome! And if you can get it to look more realistic, I encourage you to post your findings here. Thanks!
