- All the internal angles of the constituent polygons are a multiple of 22.5°.
- Contains four regular two-pointed star polygons with vertex angle of 45°.
- Contains four regular 8-pointed star polygons with vertex angle of 90°.
- Contains one regular 16-pointed star polygon with vertex angle of 45°.
- There are 15 non-regular reflective tiles (including 3 kites and one dart) and one reflective pair.
