EDIT- SOLD.

I have this 8 color Mozaika for sale for $270 plus shipping.

This is now a very rare puzzle, not seen on ebay (by me at least) in years.

I purchased the remaining stock from the inventor Rudolph Destics in about 2007.
They are really wonderful puzzles. 2x2 cube mechanism combined with equator-like tiles. It uses a type of rails or void mechanism.


They were attractively made by melt-welding the plastic tiles, so there are no stickers.

Some were sold in kits, with extra tiles to allow the owner to re-build the puzzle with different color configurations.

The inventor spent lots of time and resources getting them produced. There were only about 1500 made divided into 18 styles. So anyone that has one has a truly unique twisty item.

Mine move really nicely. Much better than any of my 3 equators. UPDATE-- by my standards today, they are stiff. They have to be lined up right and feel stiff compared to my other puzzles, so this should be of more interest to collectors than speedsolvers since they are such a rare mass produced puzzle.

Includes no packaging, but has a metal ring for taking it apart.

First PM gets it.

EDIT- SOLD.
