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

This artifact doesn't have any positive or 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.
