I was playing around with an incandescent material in Redshift (it's a capsule that has that red-orange glow). That got my light underneath, then I used water as a base for my ice material and tweaked some of the refraction settings and mad it thin walled. It gave me some fun crazy colors. Ice modeled in sculpt mode. The bubble are Mograph cloner set to object mode (on the cube) of spheres that are then distorted by a Melt effector.
