Here’s the pentagonal icositetrahedron. It is the dual of the snub cube.
And here is its third stellation. As you can see, it’s a compound of two irregular dodecahedra.

A great dodecahedron (red) sits in the middle of this polyhedral cluster. The polyhedra touching the one in the center are blue small stellated dodecahedra. Finally, there are yellow great stellated dodecahedra on the outside.

This compound has three parts: two tetrahedra, plus one smaller cube. I made it using Stella 4d: Polyhedron Navigator, which you can try for free at

In the picture above, each component of this compound has its own color. In the one below, each set of parallel faces is given a color of its own.
These images were made using Stella 4d, software you may try for yourself at this website.
In the first version of this compound shown here, the great stellated dodecahedron is shown in yellow, while the small stellated dodecahedron is shown in red.
In the next version, each face has its own color, except for those in parallel planes, which have the same color.
Finally, the third version is shown in “rainbow color mode.”
