Thanks, Tobi. What do you think I can do to improve it?

Would a lighter background help?

I think either a black or a white background would add more contrast and the crystal would look more impressive. But I know about the struggle with some specimens, and transparent beryls can be ***holes when it comes to shooting photos :-( But IF you are willing to try again, black or white should look better than grey.

Good luck :-)

Don,

Just change the background color with your image editor. Maybe white would be the best, but once you did the hard work, switching to other colors is like children playing. Then try also black color and compare. If not sure, post both.

Good luck!

There are 2 ways to look at this.
You either change the background color with your image editor as suggested by Carles.
Or you explore the impact of different background colors on your camera sensors.
The second route is probably more challenging but also more rewarding.
