Rhombic Icosahedron and its Dissection, Golden Ratio

3D model description

Rhombic Icosahedron and its Dissection, Golden Ratio
A rhombic icosahedron built from a rhombic triacontahedron. Each rhombus has a golden ratio between its long and short diagonals. It looks strange on screen but feels great when you have it in your hands! Four versions are included in two sizes: whole, shelled whole, the half, and shelled shelf, to meet diverse needs. It takes two congruent halves to make whole as expected.

Using a shelled one, perhaps someone can keep a plant in it? Have fun!
