The Shining Trapezohedron

"RPFer" brings us this recreation of the Shining Trapezohedron from Lovecrafts "The Haunter of the Dark".  The custom cut crystal is colored with, of all things, spray-on taillight tint.

For some reason I feel the urge to point out that this is not a trapezohedron.

I think I know that guy, over at the RPF. He does a lot of 'crystal' stuff, Superman (197X) crystals, etc. Maybe knives, too...

... I should read The Haunter of the Dark again, it's one of my favorites...

Hey

That's me :).

My ebay id is rpfer, but my handle on the rpf is hydin. Most people know me from that. Pretty much everyone just calls me Chris, though.

I was wondering why I suddenly had so many views on this and the sphere video, and holy crap I made Propnomicon! It made my week :)

Glad you thought it awesome enough to include on the site!
