A Polyhedron In Need of a Name

A Polyhedron In Need of a Name

This is the dual of the polyhedron from the previous post, although without any faces rendered invisible, as was the case with that one. I find it strongly reminiscent of the rhombic triacontahedron, but it has twice as many rhombi (sixty), as well as twenty triangles. Unlike the rhombic triacontahedron, this figure is chiral.

I can’t think of an appropriate name for this, so, if anyone has one, please leave your suggestion in a comment.

I find the interference patterns in this diagram interesting. They’re an artifact of the computer display, of course — if you were seeing this on paper, it would look quite different.

In the program I used to make these (Geometer’s Sketchpad), you can select various objects. If everything is selected here, the interference pattern changes:
