A jumbling only puzzle in the shape of the namegiving solid.

The deltoidal Icositetrahedron is a catalan solid. It consists of 24 deltoids aka kites. There are cuts parallel to every single face of the puzzle. Since this geometry isn't equivalent to any of the traditional six axis systems it allows only jumbling moves. Even more interesting that there are two different jumbling moves possible in some states.

This is not the first puzzle with this axis system. The first was the DinoBram which was built from Oskar van Deventer after an idea of Bram Cohen. A variant of this puzzle with hexahedral shape is the Celticube from the same inventor. Another variant with this axis system is the Edge Turning Rhombic Dodecahedron again from the same inventor.
