|Set of gyroelongated pyramids|
Example pentagonal form
|Symmetry group||Cnv, [n], (*nn)|
|Rotational group||Cn, [n]+, (nn)|
There are two gyroelongated pyramids that are Johnson solids made from regular triangles and square, and pentagons. A triangular and hexagonal form can be constructed with coplanar faces. Others can be constructed allowing for isosceles triangles.
|Gyroelongated triangular pyramid
|Gyroelongated square pyramid (J10)||12 triangles, 1 squares|
|Gyroelongated pentagonal pyramid (J11)||15 triangles, 1 pentagon|
|Gyroelongated hexagonal pyramid
|18 triangles, 1 hexagon|
