Spinning Diamond Animation

This is a fairly quick animation by all accounts.
Simple diamond model, 2x IES mesh lights, camera aperture diffraction (6 blade).
23 frames @ 600 samples per pixel. Took about 3 or 4 days to render, I've not really been counting ;)

Small amount of post in Photoshop, despeckle filter and "Match Colour" (with the first frame) so that the background remains consistant. (The bright highlights changed the contrast dramatically on some frames due to the tonemapping).
