That is interesting, but I’m not sure I understand fully.

Do you mean that, for instance, if the length of three edges is in proportions 3 : 5 : 8

then the new face would be a point of a 5 pointed star?

That seems counter-intuitive to me.

I can imagine that if the lengths were 3 : 3 : 5

that the new face might approximate a star point,

but “any three terms of the Fibonacci series” seems like it would often generate a new face

that was not an isosceles triangle, let alone a golden ratio one.

Perhaps I’m misunderstanding what you mean?

I actually do mean 3:5:8 but the phi ratio gets closer the higher in the sequence one goes; the 3:5 triangle has the shorter side of the star( the side of a pentagon) while the 3:8 and 5:8 triangles -dont ask me HOW…wind up having equal lengths for the third sides of their triangles- the two diagonals of the pentagon, or the sides that form the “point” of the star
