An Elemental(Neon) enhanced but splitting the plunger and thereby adding six triangles.

This puzzle was built through splitting the plungers of an Elemental:Neon. The original puzzle was invented and built by David Litwin. This modification was named by its inventor Elemental(Neon-Carbid). The creator of this new variant used the grey pieces shown in images 3-6.
New about this puzzle is that there is way more freedom to push the plungers. On the original Elemental(Neon) after the first pushed plunger you have no other chance but make five more moves in a specific way. In this puzzle you have four choices after the first move.
In the handmade version the new pieces tend to wiggle since a big part of them reach out of the puzzle although they do not fall out. The inventor of the original Elemental(Neon) designed a slightly improved version. The improved version has a larger hull to prevent wiggling of the additional pieces. Therefore the new pieces are still fully contained when the plungers are pushed. This new puzzle received the name Elemental(Sulfur).
