Properties --

In geometry, the great grand stellated 120-cell is a star polychoron with Schläfli symbol {5/2,3,3}. It is one of 10 regular Schläfli-Hess polychora. It is unique among the 10 for having 600 vertices, and has the same vertex arrangement as the regular convex 120-cell.

It is one of four regular star polychora discovered by Ludwig Schläfli. It is named by John Horton Conway, extending the naming system by Arthur Cayley for the Kepler-Poinsot solids, and the only one containing all three modifiers in the name.

As a stellation

The great grand stellated 120-cell is the final stellation of the 120-cell.
