Polyhedra

A polyhedron is a three-dimensional solid that consists of a collection of polygons joined at their edges. The word derives from the Greek "poly-" ("many") plus the Indo-European "-hedron" ("seat"). Polyhedra form in the natural world in some crystals and have been of interest to many civilizations in art, architecture and games of chance.
