Artifacts are very rare things to see in the game, but they are worth a lot of credits. They are normally found in areas that have ore fields. Currently, there are 3 artifacts, but more could be added. They randomly spawn and only take 0.5 Cargo Hold each. Only two artifacts currently have a use aside from selling them for money: The Ascension Crystal can be used in a quest given by the Monogram in Aqueous II's asteroid belt and the Data Archive can be used in a quest found on Myriad III's moon.
