- Inventory description


  • Not a common artifact, irregardless of the inventory description.
  • Difficult to spot due to the very low 'twinkle' emitted.
  • Most instances are found upon the bodies of dead stalkers.
  • May also be seen in fields and along roads but good eyes and situational awareness are needed to see them.


  • Distinguished from its relation, the Thorn by having a more metallic-blue appearance with a larger central node.
  • More useful for Radiation control than the Thorn and produces the same degree of out-bleeding as a consequence.
