The icosahedral prism is a prismatic uniform polychoron that consists of 2 icosahedra and 20 triangular prisms. Each vertex joins 1 icosahedron and 5 triangular prisms. It is a prism based on the icosahedron. As such it is also a convex segmentochoron (designated K4.36 in Richard Klitzing's list).

Representations[edit  edit source]
An icosahedral prism has the following Coxeter diagrams:
 x o5o3x (full symmetry)
 x2s3s4o () (bases as pyritohedral symmetry)
 x2s3s3s () (as snub tetrahedral prism)
 oo5oo3xx&#x (bases seen separately)
 xxxx oxoo5ooxo&#xt (H_{2}×A_{1} axial, edgefirst)
Related polychora[edit  edit source]
An icosahedral prism can be cut into a central pentagonal antiprismatic prism augmented with 2 pentagonal pyramidal prisms.
The regiment of the icosahedral prism also contains the great dodecahedral prism.
