I made a Christoph's Jewel and carried on going.

I used a DaYan Octahedron, 1mm styrene sheet, Milliput, and some filed down Gigaminx (long size) screws. I hand-cut the stickers and used bright fluorescent colours where possible. The turning is average. It was quite straightforward to make.

I really want to say something really elaborate about this puzzle, but all I can think of right now is, cool.


I do want.

Simple but looks really good. Reminds me a bit of my Octaminx.

Firstly, I really like the concept. Secondly, I really admire the execution. Well done.
A "5x5x5" version would look very nice...

Looks like an Octaminx and a Pentultimate had a baby. Awesome build!

"Cuboctaminx"!

Now I wonder if anyone will cut up one of Lee Tutt's Icosaminxes to make the last one in the set. :lol:

That looks great... but with all your puzzles for some reason I'm confused about how they turn. Don't ask me why.
