The pyramid which was built of black bricks of Nile mud, was faced with white limestone, like most of the Middle Kingdom Pyramids. What remains today looks like a crater. Its core has been divided by a huge rift made by Vyse and Perring when they were trying to enter the pyramid in 1839. The pyramid contained several burial chambers which still held the jewelry of princesses.
