The Snowflake is an artifact found in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Lost Alpha and all canon S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games except S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl.

While not being remotely similar to snowflakes to the naked eye, on a microscopic level its whole structure looks exactly like thousands of snowflakes.
- Inventory description


  • Not a very common artifact but far from difficult to obtain.
  • Although the properties would be consistent with similar, naturally occurring Electro spawned artifacts, this has never been observed in such areas.


  • There is no night-time restriction for visibility with this artifact.
  • The first can be found in a pipe in Agroprom Underground after the stash coordinates get randomly discovered from either a military or a loner corpse (2% chance)
  • The second specimen the player may locate lies in a supply tin in a small shack near to the northern Rostok exit of the Yantar level.
  • A third specimen will be found as the "blocking artifact" in the Outskirts spawn point south of the row of garages.
  • This, and the other Outskirts anomaly field spawn point may both release further Snowflakes during later spawnings but they are by no means common (the Night Star is far more commonly spawned)


  • The Snowflake may be created by Artifact Merger synthesis by combining the three naturally occurring Electro artifacts.
