Click a thumbnail to see its larger version and description.
A coin cube put in midturn and reshaped into a cube.

The Carnation Cube is a cubic shape-mod of the Alien Rhombic Dodecahedron from the same inventor. In other words, it was designed by turning all eight corners of the Coin Cube by 60 degrees and then transforming it back into a cube. The inventor changed the face turning cuts on this puzzle a bit such that the edge pieces (corresponding to petals on the Coin Cube) look symmetric externally.
The inventor designed and printed this puzzle for two reasons:
1. To have cubic puzzle in the museum.
2. To have a birthday gift to his mother to be put on her office table. This also explains the name.
Edge length: 60 mm
Weight: 109 grams
