Brilliant puzzle Aleh! By any chance is it based on the DaYan Gem II?

Stunning workmanship Aleh. This is absolutely beautiful!

As with every other puzzle you have shown, I wish this one gets mass produced!

Sorry for double posting, but I was thinking a lot about this puzzle. I realized a couple things.
First, this is the ideal transformation of a Gem 2, because in the Gem 2, there are no corners. This make it much easier to transform into a magic octahedron (type).
Second, I cannot imagine how you managed to conceal the cross pieces (the 4 pieces directly around every face center).
Third, this is possibly my favorite modification of all time.

-(A very humbled) Doug

Uh oh. Here it goes. A triple post.
Andreas, I'm mildly surprised you didn't already ask.
Aleh, would you please post a jumbling picture? It does jumble, right?
