This modification could bear several names:
"Extended RhombicDodecahedronSkewb 3A5E8A00145E97"
"Eschers Solid Skewb"
"Extended RhombicDodecahedronSkewb UL UF UR UB LF LB RF RB DL DF DR DB"
"First stellation of rhombic dodecahedron skewb"
"My second skewb with twelve spikes" :)
Which one should I choose?

It weighs 591 grams.

Would you post some mid-turn pictures? I think those would be interesting.

Nice, this also reminds me of the alexander's star. The way it solves, and the way it looks are both similar.
Great puzzle. I wonder how it turns and what it looks like when it is :scrambled:
See what I did there? LOL

No. It is not similar to the Alexander Star! That would be this one: *evil laugh*

I think this shape's dual would look really good for the cutting planes of the Skewb.
