I love it and it looks awesome!!! Did you happen to use a rubik's UFO for this? If not what did you use.

Those are square-1 corners. Greenhill made this but its 3 layerd instead of 2 layered. http://twistypuzzles.com/cgi-bin/puzzle.cgi?pid=775

I would like as well to know which is the core of this beautiful 2-layer star prism :)

I remember that last month on ebay was sold a similar one, and it was made with a Rubik-UFO core. Guess here it's the same, but a confirmation would be appreciated :wink:



(Ciao Italrubik!)

Rubik,
You are a genious!
How on Earth did you build it without using a UFO core?
Did you use magic?
Fantastic look with transparent pieces!
Well done!
Vadim

Ah I see, it's not perfectly a 2-layer, i.e. there's a large defect with it.

This problem I can't think of a way to fix on a Sq-1... maybe that's why we don't see any true 2-layer Sq-1s.
