Polyhedron : 16-Sided by TaffGoch Polyhedron : 16-Sided by TaffGoch
Tetrahedral symmetry; 4 hexagons, 12 pentagons

The red hexagonal faces are co-planar with tetrahedral faces. (Note: The bottom face is a hexagon.)

The pentagonal "triplets" point to the vertices of the tetrahedron.

Hexagons are regular. Pentagons are slightly irregular.

Occurs in nature, as natural gas hydrates. See "Natural Gas Hydrates: Structure II" for additional geometry description.
