I decided to gather some rhinestones and try one of these myself...I think it turned out quite well considering it's my first and I've never done anything like this before...I do wonder though, if there's an easier way to line up the rhinestones on the faces of each cubie, as some are a bit crooked/misaligned...

did you glue one rinestone on at a time or was it a sheet of them you cut and put on?

They were, in fact, glued on one at a time. Very tedious job :/

Watch out. You are probably going to be bombarded by trade offers from Kastellorizo. :P

I'll keep a look out...none so far. But maybe I'll be able to get a custom puzzle I've been wanting in exchange? lol This puzzle wasn't very cheap to make, ya know ;)

Very nice job! I wanted to make one of these, but I couldn't find the crystals the right size and decided that I didn't have the patience to do it anyway :)

Now make one with real gems:
Emerald/Sapphire
Ruby/Garnet
Diamond/Tourmaline
That would be cool!

It was hard spending the $85+ on this cube...I don't think my wallet can handle the cost of those types of gems :P

Yes you are correct. It took I guess somewhere between 3 and 5 hours putting them on? not straight time...off and on, of course.

Indeed, it requires a lot of tedious work, but the outcome is dazzling.
