The **great chirorhombidodecahedron**, **gikrid**, or **compound of six pentagrammic prisms** is a uniform polyhedron compound. It consists of 30 squares and 12 pentagrams, with one pentagram and two squares joining at a vertex.

Its quotient prismatic equivalent is the pentagrammic prismatic hexateroorthowedge, which is eight-dimensional.

## Vertex coordinates[edit | edit source]

The vertices of a great chirorhombidodecahedron of edge length 1 are given by all permutations of:

- ,

plus all even permutations of:

- ,
- .

This compound is chiral. The compound of the two enantiomorphs is the great disrhombidodecahedron.
