Modelling 'LitraCon' Light-transmitting Concrete

I have a student who is currently designing a museum for his
dissertation. Can anyone offer advice in modelling this
Light-transmitting Concrete

For those who have never heard of this material before, it is basically
concrete with embedded optical fibres.
Initial thoughts are to model as 'trans' material modified with a dirty
function for the opaque areas, though there is a definite suggestion
that the optic fibres be arranged in rows or columns within the block.
