  1. Rhombohedron

    In geometry, a rhombohedron is a three-dimensional figure like a cube, except that its faces are not squares but rhombi. It is a special case of a parallelepiped where all edges are the same length. In general the rhombohedron can have three types of rhomboid faces in congruent opposite pairs. If all of the non-obtuse internal angles of the faces are equal, it can be called a trigonal trapezohedron. Another special case is that, where there is a plane of symmetry through four vertices, and a special case of that, where there is another plane of symmetry through the other four vertices. The cube combines these special properties, and so is a special case of the rhombohedron. A less symmetric example is a rhombic prism, constructed by two rhombi and 4 squares, with D2h symmetry. The rhombohedral lattice system has rhombohedral cells, with 3 pairs of unique rhombic faces:
