First consider the side lengths:

PQ: sqrt(1^2 + 4^2 + 3^2) = 5

QR: sqrt(6^2 + 2^2 + 0) = sqrt40

RS: sqrt(1^2 + 4^2 + 3^2) = 5

SP: sqrt(6^2 + 2^2 + 0) = sqrt40

Next look at the direction cosines. They are the same for the PQ and RS pair, and for the pair QR and SP.

Opposite sides are of equal length and parallel. Adjacent sides are connected. It must be a parallelogram. There must be a theorem for that.
