The Coulomb projection has bandology of (1,5,5,5,5,5,5,1) which we suspect is a common form for n=2 modulo 5. The degree 5 points occur the icosahedral pattern (1,5,5,1) and the degree 6 points are in the form of a dodecahedron. In fact this figure is just the addition of midpoints to the faces of either the icosahedron or of the dodecahedron. Adding midpoints to the faces of a stable figure does not always give a stable figure--with the tetrahedron you get the square which is not stable after a small perturbation nor minimal.
