The skew pure dodecahedron is a regular skew polyhedron in 4-dimensional Euclidean space. It is abstractly equivalent to the regular dodecahedron in 3-dimensional Euclidean space. It is pure, so even though it is a skew embedding of the dodecahedron it can not be decomposed into the blend of two other polyhedra.

Vertex coordinates[edit | edit source]

The vertex coordinates of the skew pure dodecahedron with an edge length of 1 are the same as those of the biambodecachoron, where the 30 smaller edges are sized to be length 1.
