The **great icosihemidodecahedron**, or **geihid**, is a quasiregular polyhedron and one of 10 uniform hemipolyhedra. It consists of 20 equilateral triangles and 6 "hemi" decagrams, with two of each joining at a vertex. Its triangular faces are parallel to those of an icosahedron, and its hemi decagrammic faces are parallel to those of a dodecahedron: hence the name "icosihemidodecahedron". The "great" suffix, used for stellations in general, distinguishes it from the small icosihemidodecahedron, which also has this face arrangement. It can be derived as a rectified petrial great stellated dodecahedron.

It is a faceting of the great icosidodecahedron, keeping the original's triangles while also using its equatorial decagrams.

## Vertex coordinates[edit | edit source]

Its vertices are the same as those of its regiment colonel, the great icosidodecahedron.
