01-05 – Diamond #5.

A 4D diamond – or the making of a rose-cut!

The rose cut is a cube appearing within a diamond.  Its geometry was created back in the 16oos. Although it may not have been intended that way – it is the first and closest representation of a hypercube created from a natural element. The background sphere of the image (the matrix) is composed of 9196 atoms, 16729 bonds, 3363 polyhedra. The cubes are the structure of the binding connection between the atoms.
