It's probably just from the flash being taken off.

Thanks (I'm a little less paranoid now)

Not really chipped, that I've found. They don't stay looking like new
forever, of course, but the pyramids are pretty durable. I throw mine
into a plastic box where they can rattle around in my checked luggage,
so somebody who babies their pyramids could have even better results.

But are you seeing a true chip? If it's in the center of one of the
four sides, it's probably an artifact of removing the sprue. Many
pyramids, especially large ones, have a small stub of sprue remaining;
a few may have a divot at the sprue site.


Hope this helps!
