    someone got looted while trying to blackrock the spawn(which i haven't been able to do) by a shadow fiend or spectral and when it died it dropped it?

    that's my only idea, i haven't seen any.

    Nope.

    It is an interesting find, though.

    How did you happen to find it, by ctrl-shifting?

    Yes. My friend did ctrl-shift and said to me there was blackrock. She picked it up and then we found a second one at same place.

    A few months ago I picked up 1 of maybe 20 vendor runes in Luna bank. When I got to the vendor house in Malas, I found 32 small pieces of Black Rock on the ground in right in front of the vendors. Explain this one?

    Blackrock is of almost no value?

    I'LL TAKE IT!
     
  10. I found half a dozen pieces in Makota Jima (Oceania) at a very quiet location. Another miner may have dropped them but i've never seen other miners around this location.
    Just happened to notice them, no CTRL-Shift.

    I'll be looking out for more now!!

    It is possible they are residual from the time when the small pieces spawned *everywhere*. I found one, from that time, fairly recently, in Brit forest, north of the graveyard.

    Yep, quite possible - they weren't all accounted for the last time I looked

    i get small pieces of BR all the time... i guess i get 1 for every 30 or so gems i dig up, just to give you an idea of how often they pop up. i don't think there's a correlation, but i seem to get blackrock in places that give me lots of shadow iron... just coincidence, i'm sure.

    anyway, i save em. who knows...

    I save the blackrock I mine too. They just made the small ones insurable...... I wonder why.

    naturally occurring blackrock from the spawn way back doesn't show as blackrock when you ctrl+shift though. It will be Diamond or Ruby. So if it was already showing as that then it was probably dropped.
