In geometry, the small retrosnub icosicosidodecahedron or small inverted retrosnub icosicosidodecahedron is a nonconvex uniform polyhedron, indexed as U72. It is also called a retroholosnub icosahedron, ß{3/2,5}. Unlike most snub polyhedra, it has reflection symmetries.

Convex hull[edit]

Its convex hull is a nonuniform truncated dodecahedron.

Cartesian coordinates[edit]

Cartesian coordinates for the vertices of a small retrosnub icosicosidodecahedron are all the even permutations of

(±(1-ϕ−α), 0, ±(3−ϕα))
(±(ϕ-1−α), ±2, ±(2ϕ-1−ϕα))
(±(ϕ+1−α), ±2(ϕ-1), ±(1−ϕα))

where ϕ = (1+√5)/2 is the golden ratio and α = √(3ϕ−2).
