DaYan Gem II
Click a thumbnail to see its larger version and description.
A hybrid of a 3x3x3 and a helicopter cube.

This is the first mass produced hybrid of an face turning and edge turning hexahedron. The puzzle has two cuts per axis for both axis systems. Its shape is a biscribed truncated octahedron, one of the biscribed non-chiral solids.
The shape can be confused with a truncated octahedron an archimedean solid but that would have had regular hexagons. A puzzle with regular hexagons would have needed additional pieces. Therefore this shape was used.
Distance between the squares: 75 mm
Weight: 206 grams
