Spodumain is amongst the most valuable ore types around, as it is one of only three ore types that yields the ultra-rare Megacyte. Otherwise very plain, with a bit of Tritanium and Pyerite. 100 ore units are needed to refine.
There are two variants:
Spodumain is occasionaly found with crystalline traces in its outer surface. Known as Bright Spodumain, The 5% increased yield this yields adds considerable value to an already valuable mineral.
Once in a while Spoudumain is found with crystalline veins running through it. The 10% increased yields puts the gleam of profits in the eye of any miner lucky enough to find it.
Using Spodumain mining crystals requires the following skills:
Spodumain Processing III
Refinery Efficiency IV
Using Tech II Spodumain mining crystals requires the following additional skills:
Spodumain Processing IV
