Alternative D6 Sphere

This is a Truncated Sphere Dice with 6 faces but it is not based on the cube.
Instead the underlying polyhedron is a double pyramid.
As a consequence, the numbers are not lying on the faces but on the edges.

Thanks Orangery. It is based on a (non-regular) triangular dipyramid: http://mathworld.wolfram.com/TriangularDipyramid.html
