A vertex-turning jumbling tetrakis hexahedron.

Fractured Cube is based on the geometry of the tetrakis hexahedron, a catalan solid. It has 24 sides, and it is a jumbling, but not shape-shifting puzzle. It turns on eight axes, once located at each vertex showing six-way symmetry. This alone is known from each octahedral axis system like the face-turning octahedron.
Special about this puzzle is that each axis can turn in increments of 60°. But most often 60° turns will block adjacent axes, so 120° turns need to be used unless the axis being turned has all of the edges pointing in the proper direction.
Edge length (square): 57 mm
Diameter (center peak to peak): 84 mm
Weight: 72 grams
