Kernite is a fairly common ore type that yields the largest amount of Mexallon of any ore types in the universe. Besides Mexallon, Kernite ore also has a bit of Tritanium and Isogen. 400 units of ore are needed for refining. Kernite has a volume of 1.2m3.

There are two variants:

Luminous KerniteEdit

Prophets tell of the mystical nature endowed in Luminous Kernite. To the rest of us, it's an average looking ore that has 5% more yield than normal Kernite and can make you rich if you mine it 24/7 and live to be very old.

Fiery KerniteEdit

Known as Rage Stone to veteran miners after a discovery of a particularly rich vein of it caused a bar brawl of epic proportions in the Intaki Syndicate. It has a 10% higher yield than basic Kernite.
