26. before you get your hopes up, folks....

....that there's some great, hidden ocean down there, ringwoodite does not hold liquid water within its structure, but hydroxide ions. Shave off one of the H atoms in normal H2O and you have hydroxide, HO. If it picks up a H+ cation, than bingo, H2O.

This is interesting though. Some of the relatively recent findings, blurring of the lines between comets and asteroids (most may be a combination of both) suggests that water was present throughout the formation of Earth, thus beginning a more geologically based water cycle we're just beginning to understand.
