The shape of the puzzle is a truncated triakis octahedron. What would it look like as a triakis octahedron?

I was wondering just the same after somebody posted a picture of the Gem VI and the Wheel of Wisddom next to each other to display the similarities, and I wondered what the "original" puzzle would look like that could be turned into either of them.

I can't do much in the way of rendering, but just realize that the Octohedral (Is it Octahedral?) faces are the truncations. It would essentially be corner turning, but only on the corners where 8 triangles meet.
