Plagioclase is not amongst the most valuable ore types around, but it has the largest amount of Pyerite of any ore and is thus always in constant demand. It also yields some Tritanium and Mexallon. It has a volume of 0.35m3, and it requires 100 ore units to refine.
There are two variants:
Azure Plagioclase was made infamous in the melancholic song prose Miner Blues by the Gallentean folk singer Jaroud Dertier three decades ago. Also in addition to being named by a folk singer Azure Plagioclase gives 5% better yield.
With Rich Plagioclase having a 10% better yield than the normal one, miners can finally regard Plagioclase as a mineral that provides a noteworthy profit.
