Looks like a true icosahedral Starminx! (With no Megaminx corners, I mean.)

Currently there are two entries in the museum which have the same solved state:
Tutts Icosaminx and Icosaix.
Sadly there are no midturn-images. I can't tell whether this is a cornerturning oder faceturning puzzle.

I can confirm that Eric Vergo's Ve-Minx is indeed a corner turning icosahedron. It turns on the cuts depper than the Tutt's Icosaminx.
The puzzle is similar to a Starminx in an icosahedral shape.
It has the number 2.2.4 on Gelatin Brain.
A very nice puzzle!

Actually, it IS a Starminx in Icosahedral shape. The Astrominx is actually the Icosahedral equivalent of GB 1.1.4.
