Despite the general namings above, only the dual or the kis operation settle the relative height to width ratio. All the measures provided herein will refer to that choice.

The face is kite {(k,K,K,K)} with corner angle k = 36° and K = 108°, where side KK has size v = (sqrt(5)-1)/2 = 0.618034, diagonal KK has size x = 1, side kK has size f = (1+sqrt(5))/2 = 1.618034, and diagonal kK has size sqrt[(5+sqrt(5))/2] = 1.902113.

This polyhedron can also be obtained as a stellation of doe by blending at 2 opposite pentagons with tall pyramids, which are the tips of sissid. Alternatively it is also the according deca-truncation of the latter.
