The Pentacle puzzle is essentially a pentagonal floppy cube. It turns on five axes, one at each point of the star shape. It is a bit trickier than it might seem at first glance since the reverse side shows the same pattern, but it is mirrored.

This model is only the black frame of the puzzle parts. To complete the puzzle you will also need to purchase the Pentacle puzzle color chip model This is easiest to do by using the "Add Set to Cart" button below.

The pentacle is a pagan symbol often used as a talisman by practitioners of Wicca. The circle represents unity and wholeness, and the star represents the elements that make up the world. The white point of the star represents the spirit, blue represents water, red is fire, green is earth, and yellow is air. The circle binds these elements together to create life.

You will need one 12mm M3 screw to complete this puzzle, along with the color chips from the Pentacle puzzle color chip model. Before inserting the color chips, be sure that all excess powder is cleaned out from the frame parts. Any extra powder in the cavities will cause the color chips to not fit correctly. No stickers are required, but I strongly recommend spraying the finished puzzle with a clear coat to protect the sandstone. Use several light coats, and make sure to let them dry and test the turning between each coat.

Have fun!

A really beautiful design! I've just put my order in! Very excited as this is the first puzzle I've ordered from Shapeways. Just need to find an M3 screw now...

I am not RIT dying it, so mine will be white, hopefully mine will look just as cool. Plus I don't care what color it is!
