A skewb in name of the name giving solid. This shape is the first stellation of the rhombic triacontahedron.

This is puzzle was made by an idea of Andreas Nortmann. He wanted it for a series of shape transformations in shapes of regular stellated solid. In this case the first stellation of a rhombic triacontahedron was to be implemented. To read more about this shape please refer to http://mathworld.wolfram.com/ and search for the puzzles name.

The stickering scheme was choosen to further reflect the derivation of this of this puzzle from the rhombic triacontahedron. The creator cut some stickers and the buyer applied them in a way derived from his own rhombic triacontahedron megaminx: Each face of the megaminx relates to a pair of faces of the stellated solid and this pair is stickered with the color the preceeding variant got.

The puzzle is rather small and leightweight if the shape is considered.
Distance between opposite tips: 118 mm
Distance between adjacent tips: 63 mm
Weight: 252 grams
