There seems to be a lot of Dodecahedron-Isocasohedron Puzzles lately. I love it!

Reminds me of Alexander Star!

This is one amazing puzzle!
It sure looks great, and looks confusing. I am still wrapping my head around how it turns. :shock:

Thank you all.

For those who are wondering what happened there, see the following image.
Yellow is one corner-piece of a skewb.
Blue is one face-piece of a skewb.
No magic. It is just a big heap of hardened resin.
