How many sides does a circle have?

What sort of three-dimensional shape is the crystal?

No pressure — Dakota Jones, nay, the entire world, is counting on you to locate the Lost Arc and ensure its place in a museum!

The crystal is a cube.

If I remember my "new math" right, a circle is a line and lines have two sides.

I'm pretty sure it's a cube.

If you take a side of the triangle at this largest point and divide by sqrt(2), you get the length of the side of the cube.

It's a cube, being measured perpendicular to a line through two opposite vertices.
