though this puzzle appearded in The Puzzling World Of Polyhedral Dissections, Stewart never made one! This is the first.
The six dissimilar pieces of this puzzle are anologous to those of the Second Stellation. In The Puzzling World Of Polyhedral Dissections the Second Stellation is called the Purmutated Second Stellation. Stewart renamed many of his puzzles in the book to make them more mathematically correct and less confusing to anyone unfamiliar with the puzzles he had made up to that time. For example, some of his puzzles with the second stellation shape were called Nova and Super Nova. The end result is total confusion for me!
Beacuse Stewart never made this puzzle, it has no number in his numbering system. It would probably be 50C and would probably be called Superstar like his other third stellation puzzles.
