This polyhedron has a form of icosahedral symmetry. There are 30 blue elements.

This set contains renderings of Platonic, Archimedean and Catalan solids. For most of them the sphere shown on the right is the polyhedrons midsphere.

The geometric properties of these images have been calculated with Python, and they have been rendered with POV-Ray. The source code used can be found on GitHub. The POV-Ray sources are in this folder.
