Z-hexomino is one of 35 hexominoes, and it can act as an induction coil. By itself, it dies after 45 generations, but it features prominently in some oscillators such as the pentoad and Achim's p144.

See Z-hexomino hasslers for a list of oscillators that hassle the Z-hexomino.

A Z-hexomino → LWSS conduit is known, but the rarity of the Z-hexomino in asymmetric soups makes it hard to use.
