The Mama's Beads is an artifact found in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Lost Alpha and all S.T.A.L.K.E.R. canon games.

Wonderful artifact. Keep it safe - it's good because it only has positive qualities. Scientists can't figure out how to create such an artifact in laboratory conditions.
- Inventory description


  • Still increases the player's bulletproof cap, but much less so than previously.


  • A single placement may exist in the Freedom Base in Outskirts, where it may be found in an inspection pit south-west of the Bar.
  • Any other instances are only obtainable by looting corpses.
  • May be confused with Red beads during a cursory glance.
  • Still fetches a good price with the most generous Traders.


  • Reputed to be used in several artifact conversions that the player is unable to obtain the recipes for.
  • Parent anomaly quoted from STALKER Wiki.
