The "regular icosahedron" is one of the Platonic solids; the "great icosahedron" is a Kepler-Poinsot solid; and the "truncated icosahedron" is an Archimedean solid (see Polyhedron).
In crystallography the icosahedron is a possible form, but it has not been observed; it is closely simulated by a combination of the octahedron and pentagonal dodecahedron, which has twenty triangular faces, but only eight are equilateral, the remaining twelve being isosceles (see Crystallography).
The distance between adjacent vertices of the icosahedron is 5% longer than the distance between a vertex and the center.
Nevertheless, holding that every dimension has a principle of its own, he rejected the derivation of the elemental solids - pyramid, octahedron, icosahedron and cube - from triangular surfaces, and in so far approximated to atomism.
The first three were certainly known to the Egyptians; and it is probable that the icosahedron and dodecahedron were added by the Greeks.Advertisement
The equilateral triangle is the basis of the tetrahedron, octahedron and icosahedron.'
The great dodecahedron is determined by the intersections of the twelve planes which intersect the Platonic icosahedron in five of its edges; or each face has the same boundaries as the basal sides of five covertical faces of the icosahedron.
The great icosahedron is the reciprocal of the great stellated dodecahedron.
Each of the twenty triangular faces subtend at the centre the same angle as is subtended by four whole and six half faces of the Platonic icosahedron; in other words, the solid is determined by the twenty planes which can be drawn through the vertices of the three faces contiguous to any face of a Platonic icosahedron.
It is enclosed by 20 triangular faces belonging to the original icosahedron, and 12 pentagonal faces belonging to the coaxial dodecahedron.Advertisement
The truncated icosahedron is formed similarly to the icosidodecahedron, but the truncation is only carried far enough to leave the original faces hexagons.

The truncated dodecahedron is formed by truncating the vertices of a dodecahedron parallel to the faces of the coaxial icosahedron so as to leave the former decagons.
It is enclosed by 20 triangular faces belonging to the icosahedron and 12 decagons belonging to the dodecahedron.
