# Our Five Platonic Solids

Tetrahedron (Fire 720°) It has 4 Faces Each face is an Equilateral Triangle It has 6 Edges It has 4 Vertices (corner points) and at each vertex 3 edges meet

Cube Facts (Earth 2160°) It has 6 Faces Each face has 4 edges (and is a square) It has 12 Edges It has 8 Vertices (corner points) and at each vertex 3 edges meet

- Salt Crystals grow in cube like shapes.
