A Uniform Polyhedron $U_{54}$ whose Dual is the Great Rhombic Triacontahedron (also called the Great Stellated Triacontahedron). It is a Stellated Archimedean Solid. It has Schläfli Symbol $\left\{{3\atop{\textstyle{5\over 2}}}\right\}$ and Wythoff Symbol $2\,\vert\,3\,{\textstyle{5\over 2}}$. Its faces are $20\{3\}+12\{{\textstyle{5\over 2}}\}$. Its Circumradius for unit edge length is


where $\phi$ is the Golden Ratio.
