Essentially a deeper cut megaminx at heart, the Pyraminx crystal adds a new twist to the classic puzzle.
Originally pictured in the 1982 catalogue, "PYRAMINX" by Uwe Meffert. Uwe has claimed that this item only ever existed as a cardboard mockup, which was true for about 23 years.
The patent number given here steems from a patent granted to Uwe Lindemeier in 1987.
In 2005 Mr. Okamoto built the 'Mega Crystal' based on the Megaminx core which was the first realization of the Pyraminx Crystal. Aleh Hladzilin created "Alehs Brilic" in 2006 independently.
In 2008, using Aleh's design, Uwe Meffert has put this puzzle into production. The Pyraminx Crystal was produced in black and white plastic for the core, tiles (no stickers), and is currently (as of March 2009) sold out.
In 2011 Meffert's re-released the puzzle under the name New Improved Pyraminx Crystal.
