Dark Ochre Asteroid

Dark Ochre was for years ignored as a worthwhile ore to mine until improved refining techniques managed to extract the huge amount of Nocxium inside it, the highest ratio of Nocxium found in any ore in the world. It also contains some Tritanium and Zydrine. 400 ore units of Dark Ochre are needed to refine it. It has a volume of 8.0 m3.

There are two variants:

Onyx OchreEdit

Shiny black nuggets of Onyx Ochre look very nice and are occasionally used in ornaments. But the great amount of nocxium is what miners are really after. Like in all else, good looks are only an added bonus.

Obsidian OchreEdit

Obsidian Ochre, the most valuable member of the Dark Ochre family, was only first discovered a decade ago. The sleek black surface of this mineral managed to reflect scanning waves, making Obsidian Ochre asteroids almost invisible. Advances in scanning technology revealed these beauties at last.
