The VeryPuzzle Clover Octahedron is the octahedral variant of the Clover Cube. As with the other clover cube variants, it features 2 locations on each edge that can be rotated freely.
The puzzle is shipped inside a black box, and it is fully pre-stickered right out of the box.

Our Promise to You
All of our products are guaranteed to be free of defects, or we will replace and reship at no cost to you. Please contact us within 4 weeks (28 days) past the delivery date to report any issues with items you have purchased.
Please note that some new cubes when being used for the first few times may experience what is termed a "pop". This is when one or more parts of a puzzle pop out without any damage actually being done to any of the pieces. This also occurs from time to time during normal usage. Pops are typically not considered a defect if the parts which come off can be reassembled by hand.
The corners on 2x2 puzzles should not be twisted as doing so may snap the piece. Damage caused by corner twisting is not considered to be a defect.

This is a beautiful piece for anyone that collects these sort of things. I call this a "piece" because I'm reluctant to describe it as a puzzle. This becomes evident very quickly when you attempt to scramble this thing. The best you can hope for is to rearrange a few pieces along a an equator around the puzzle. Pieces rotate and move, that is about all that can be said for it. VeryPuzzle soon released a more complex version call the Octahedron Fragmentation. It can be scrambled to some degree, but more cuts are yet needed for it to become a truly formidable puzzle. I suspect the cuts for these puzzles followed a geometry that worked well for the cubic versions of this series, but did not translate well onto the octahedron.
To sum it up shortly, this puzzle cannot be scrambled in any meaningful way. Not enough so that it could be considered a puzzle much beyond the difficulty of Boob Cube (1x1x2). For this reason I only give this puzzle 2 stars. It isn't really a puzzle at all. It is art, or perhaps a mass produced example of a poorly thought out design.
