```The problem is the
VertexTextureCoordinates ->
They seem to specify only one face specifically.
I'd like to get the texture on all the faces.
Here what runs to give one textured face:

gm = ExampleData[{"ColorTexture", "WhiteMarble"}];
v = {{0, 0, -(5/Sqrt[50 - 10 Sqrt[5]])}, {0, 0, 5/Sqrt[
50 - 10 Sqrt[5]]}, {-Sqrt[(2/(5 - Sqrt[5]))],
0, -(1/Sqrt[10 - 2 Sqrt[5]])}, {Sqrt[2/(5 - Sqrt[5])], 0, 1/Sqrt[
10 - 2 Sqrt[5]]}, {(1 + Sqrt[5])/(
2 Sqrt[10 - 2 Sqrt[5]]), -(1/2), -(1/Sqrt[10 - 2 Sqrt[5]])}, {(
1 + Sqrt[5])/(2 Sqrt[10 - 2 Sqrt[5]]), 1/
2, -(1/Sqrt[10 - 2 Sqrt[5]])}, {-((1 + Sqrt[5])/(
2 Sqrt[10 - 2 Sqrt[5]])), -(1/2), 1/Sqrt[
10 - 2 Sqrt[5]]}, {-((1 + Sqrt[5])/(2 Sqrt[10 - 2 Sqrt[5]])), 1/2,
1/Sqrt[10 - 2 Sqrt[5]]}, {-((-1 + Sqrt[5])/(
2 Sqrt[10 - 2 Sqrt[5]])), -(1/2) Sqrt[(5 + Sqrt[5])/(
5 - Sqrt[5])], -(1/Sqrt[10 - 2 Sqrt[5]])}, {-((-1 + Sqrt[5])/(
2 Sqrt[10 - 2 Sqrt[5]])),
1/2 Sqrt[(5 + Sqrt[5])/(5 - Sqrt[5])], -(1/Sqrt[
10 - 2 Sqrt[5]])}, {(-1 + Sqrt[5])/(
2 Sqrt[10 - 2 Sqrt[5]]), -(1/2) Sqrt[(5 + Sqrt[5])/(5 - Sqrt[5])],
1/Sqrt[10 - 2 Sqrt[5]]}, {(-1 + Sqrt[5])/(
2 Sqrt[10 - 2 Sqrt[5]]), 1/2 Sqrt[(5 + Sqrt[5])/(5 - Sqrt[5])], 1/
Sqrt[10 - 2 Sqrt[5]]}};
i = {{2, 12, 8}, {2, 8, 7}, {2, 7, 11}, {2, 11, 4}, {2, 4, 12}, {5, 9,

4, 5}, {10, 12, 6}, {3, 8, 10}, {9, 7, 3}};
g5 = Graphics3D[{Blue, Opacity[0.5], Specularity[White, 20],
Texture[gm],
GraphicsComplex[v, Polygon[i],
VertexTextureCoordinates -> {{1, 0}, {1/4 (-1 + Sqrt[5]), Sqrt[
5/8 + Sqrt[5]/8]}, {1/4 (-1 - Sqrt[5]), Sqrt[
