Gneiss Asteroid

Gneiss is a popular ore type because it holds a bit of many minerals, increasing its utility value. It has a little something of Tritanium, Mexallon, Isogen and Zydrine. It requires 400 ore units to refine

There are two variants:

Iridescent GneissEdit

Gneiss is often the first major league ore that up and coming miners graduate to. Finding the more expensive variation of Gneiss, called Iridescent Gneiss, is a major coup for these miners.

Prismatic GneissEdit

Prismatic Gneiss has fracturized molecule-structure, which explains its unique appearance. It is the most sought after member of the Gneiss family, as it yields 10% more than common Gneiss.
