(1) There is 3-D analog of Vahlen's theorem, see http://link.springer.com/article/10.1007%2Fs11006-006-0018-6?LI=true
(2) 3-D isolation theorems and extemal Davenport forms (see Cassels "An Introduction to the Geometry of Numbers" and Swinnerton-Dyer, "On the product of three homogeneous linear forms" Acta Arith., 1971, 18, 371-385). The key role here play numbers $2\cos\frac{2\pi}7$, $2\cos\frac{4\pi}7$, $2\cos\frac{6\pi}7$ (3-D Golden Ratios).
