Summary[edit | edit source]

Exotic elements (formerly known as Precious elements) are very rare, and extremely lucrative when sold in Galactic markets.

All elements in the Exotic family have an icon with a purple background when shown in the players inventory, or on the No Man's Sky periodic table.

When a scan is taken of an area, locations with Exotic elements are tagged with a purple diamond-shaped icon.
