Minimal Hex

A skeletal version of Gemstone I.

Minimal Hex is a skeletal version of Ben Streeter's Gemstone I. It is a minimalistic puzzle in the same vein as Minimal Twist, Minimal Jumble and Minimal 7x7x7. This implementation highlights this jumbling-only geometry on a Jaap's sphere. Unlike Ben Streeter's puzzle, this version has no hidden pieces inside, so there can be no hidden bandaging.
The puzzle is a deep-cut puzzle, a simple deep-cut puzzle to be precise ("deep-cut-that-can-be-implemented-with-male/female-dovetails-without-introducing-any-additional-bandaging").
At first, this puzzle seems to be a face turning hexagonal dipyramid but its geometry does not closely follow that axis system. Instead the axes and cutting planes meet with angles that resemble the triangular dipyramid.
