This polyhedron can be seen as either a polyhedral stellation or a compound.

As a compound[edit]

It can be seen as a polyhedron compound of a great icosahedron and great stellated dodecahedron. It is one of five compounds constructed from a Platonic solid or Kepler-Poinsot solid, and its dual.

It has icosahedral symmetry (Ih) and it has the same vertex arrangement as a rhombic triacontahedron.
