Some Enantiomorphic-Pair Compounds

In the last post here, three different color-versions of the same cluster-polyhedron were shown. Since this cluster-polyhedron is chiral, it is possible to make a compound of it, and its own enantiomer (or “mirror-image,” if you prefer). This first image shows that, with the face-color chosen by the number of sides of each face.

Shown next is the dual of this figure, also colored by the number of sides of each face.

Next, another image of the first compound shown here, but with the colors chosen by face-type (referring to each face’s position in the overall polyhedron).

Finally, here is the dual, again, also with colors chosen by face-type.
