The Rhombic Hexecontahedron

This is the rhombic hexecontahedron. Its faces are 60 rhombi with diagonals in the golden ratio. I made it by starting with a rhombic triacontahedron, then stellating it 26 times. This was done using Stella 4d, a program you can try for free at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php.

This non-convex polyhedron can also be made using Zome, available at http://www.zometool.com, using all red struts of the same length. This was the reason I made the edges red, and the vertices white (like Zomeballs).
