Spodumain Asteroid

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:

Bright Spodumain[]

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.

Gleaming Spodumain[]

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.
