Bistot Asteroid

Bistot is a very valuable ore as it holds large portions of two of the rarest minerals in the galaxy, Megacyte and Zydrine, as well as some Pyerite. The portion size for refining is 200 ore units. It's volume is 16m3.

There are two variants:

Monoclinic Bistot[]

Monoclinic bistot is a variant of bistot with a slightly different crystal structure. It is highly sought-after, as it gives a slightly higher yield than its straightforward counterpart.

Triclinic Bistot[]

Bistot with a triclinic crystal system occurs very rarely under natural conditions, but is highly popular with miners due to its extra-high concentrations of the Zydrine and Megacyte minerals.
