Five tetrahedra fit neatly into the corners of a dodecahedron. See by LatexSpikes for a beautiful wirefram example. So, when rolling the compound, it'll always land on five points, like a dodecahedron, and so we can number it like a d12. There are actually two chiral forms of this shape, and this is one of them. Combining both yields another, more symmetrical shape.

No, it's a different shape. It's five tetrahedra overlaid on each other... Here, you can see it better in and tell that it isn't the same as any of the Kepler-Poinsots. (BTW, my is also a Kepler-Poinsot solid. You already have one.)

Mark .. I cant tell ... but is this a Kepler-Poinsot Polygon?
