    We report the observation of a long-range magnetic order in a quasicrystalline approximant, i.e., Cd6 Tb, demonstrating that a spin glass is not the ground state for the binary approximant but localized spins on the vertices of an icosahedron become antiferromagnetically ordered below 24 K. The result is in contrast to the spin-glasslike behaviors reported for Cd-Mg-R quasicrystals composed of same icosahedral clusters.
