Twelve sided polyhedron; all sides are equidimensional and either rhombic or pentagonal. If the dodecahedron is composed of rhombs, it is known as a rhombic dodecahedron, or simply as a dodecahedron. If it is composed of pentagons, it is known as a pentagonal dodecahedron or pyritohedron. Minerals shaped as dodecahedrons belong to the isometric system. Minerals with this property are described as dodecahedral.
