Starminx I
Above:Solved
Click a thumbnail to see its larger version and description.
A face-turning dodecahedron. The cuts are deeper than in the Pyraminx Crystal.

This is a face-turning dodecahedron. This has to be stated since it is not possible to tell just by looking at the solved puzzle. There are at least three other thinkable puzzle which would look identical if solved but have a different axes system.
This puzzle was originally name just Starminx without an additional number. Later other identical looking puzzle were realised so this was renamed "Starminx I".
The first sample was auctioned for 1625 USD.

In 2010 another two versions (with 25 mm and 30 mm edge length) of this puzzle were made by Tom van der Zanden. They were available through shapeways. Shown in image 4.
