I am proud to present my latest puzzle. It currently has no name because I was planning on using the name Triamond because it combines "triacontahedron" with "diamond" but it has already been taken. Please feel free to suggest names! If you have any questions feel free to ask and be sure to check out the Video(Upload should finish in about an hour or two)

what a puzzle! I currently only have one puzzle with this shape. That fact alone makes me want this one really bad.
I love the face pattern it has! And those 5 fold corners (?) looks interesting as well.
I still dont actually understand what I am looking at. Is this a shapemod of some other puzzle? Am I right in saying it has icosahedral geometry?
Are you going to sell these?

Wow! Brilliant puzzle! That looks seriously cool. As I say on almost all your threads, Shapeways please. :)

I believe this puzzle is equivalent to the Radiolarian which has centre pieces that moves with the faces (the deepest cut Radiolarian).

Amazing looking puzzle. I love the way your eye is decieved by the cut pattern so it looks like the turns are crooked.

Beautiful. If they can mass-produce the Tittminx, then this one is a must.

"Triamond" has already been choosen:
http://twistypuzzles.com/cgi-bin/puzzle.cgi?pkey=1754

What about "Triacontahedral icosahedron"?

EDIT:
Forgot to ask:
What is the edge length?
What is its weight?

How about Skiamond (or Skymond), mixing skewb and diamond (since it looks like a RD skewb)

Thanks for all the compliments! It is a DeFTI or Pentagram puzzle in the sahpe of the rhombic triacontahedron. This puzzle has no hidden parts though (other than the center pieces and the core) which I think makes it look very cool.
As for the name I like Rhombiond (Although its a little tricky to pronounce) but I think I'm leaning towards Diaminx (should I avoid this because it doesn't have 12 sides or turning axes?) or skiamond (It is (sort of) an equivalent to the master skewb since it since the cut depth is similar and the mechanism has many similarities to the master skewb.)
The link to the video has been updated.

Very beautiful puzzle. I think you are a very 'logical' designer, meaning you design puzzles that really need to be made but haven't been so far. Great!
