The **great dodecahedron cone**, or **gadcone**, is a nonconvex orbiform polyhedron and an edge-faceting of the icosahedron. Its faces are 5 pentagons and 5 triangles. It is named as such because the 5 pentagons are arranged around one vertex similar to the configuration found in the great dodecahedron.

It is the 5-5-3 acrohedron generated by Green's rules.

## Vertex coordinates[edit | edit source]

Its vertex coordinates are the same as those of the icosahedron with any 1 vertex removed, which is equivalent to those of the gyroelongated pentagonal pyramid.
