A Super Z (Skewb+2x2x2) in the shape of a truncated triakis tetrahedron.

This puzzle is a Super Z (Skewb+2x2x2) transformed into the shape of truncated triakis tetrahedron, a catalan. Its shape is slightly different if compared with the canonical 6-truncated triakis tetrahedron, hence the 2x2x2 cuts could go through vertices of the polyhedron.
The idea of this puzzle was proposed by Guan Yang after Linxiao Xu published his Junior Jade Puzzle (see the seperate entry). Later Guan Yang printed the core and sent it to Linxiao Xu, who printed the extension parts and finished making the puzzle.
Along with this puzzle, the inventor also made the Jade Cross (see the seperate entry). The two puzzles have same appearance (except body colour) but turn differently.
