The **pentagrammic prism**, or **stip**, is a prismatic uniform polyhedron. It consists of 2 pentagrams and 5 squares. Each vertex joins one pentagram and two squares. As the name suggests, it is a prism based on a pentagram.

## Vertex coordinates[edit | edit source]

A pentagrammic prism of edge length 1 has vertex coordinates given by:

Two non-prismatic uniform polyhedron compounds are composed of pentagrammic prisms:

There are also an infinite amount of prismatic uniform compounds that are the prisms of compounds of pentagrams.
