The Gold beads is an artifact found in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Lost Alpha.

This artifact doesn't have any positive nor negative properties. However, each bead is of enormous value in the Big Land. It is considered to be like a diamond, because of its harmless properties. Authorities overlook its sale in jewelry stores all across the world.
- Inventory description


  • Rarely seen in the wild. Can be found in 'Darkscape'.
  • Rarely found as loot.


  • Considering that this artifact has "enormous value" in the Big Land, the player would be luckier finding Red beads that actually have one positive characteristic.
  • A loophole can be made while selling them to Professor Sakharov and buying them back from him for a lower price you sold them. Player can make infinite amount of money this way.
  • Price is not a typo.


  • There is a recipe that remains off limits to the player for use with an Artifact Merger. It consists of sacrificing one Mama's Beads with a Soul and waiting for three hours. Unsuccessful conversions generate a Blue Parasite.
