Compound of the Rhombic Triacontahedron and a Truncated Icosahedron

Compound of the Rhombic Triacontahedron and a Truncated Icosahedron

I stumbled across this while manipulating polyhedra with Stella 4d, which you can try for free at http://www.software3d.com/stella.php.

The title describes the blue and yellow figure as “a” truncated icosahedron, rather than “the” truncated icosahedron, because of the slight irregularity of the hexagonal faces, a result of the truncation-planes being slightly closer to the center than is the case for the true Archimedean solid. It should be possible to fix this, but that may be beyond my abilities.
