When i first started playing Skyrim and seen the Soul gems they have a crystal like model. But the textures didn't feel up to par with the model type. What this does is make the texture transparent and crystal like.

They are all new textures. Created from the ground up.

What's done so far.
Version 1.0 - Black Soulgem,Common Soulgem,Petty Soulgem,Lesser Soulgem.
Version 1.2 - All soul gems and the Barenziahs Jewel
Version 1.3 - Re did the alpha on the Petty and lesser gems. Added Azura black star. Made the gem pieces transparent.

Download the file and copy the textures and meshes folders in Steam/steamapps/common/skyrim/data


Download with NMM and install it.

Just delete the folders soulgems in
