Artifact of Nature
The Artifact of Nature is one of twelve artifacts Samus must retrieve from Tallon IV in Metroid Prime. When all twelve artifacts are collected, Samus brings them to the Artifact Temple to open the way to the Impact Crater.
The Artifact of Nature is encased in a brittle pillar in the Lava Lake in Magmoor Caverns. The faulty pillar can be spotted using the X-Ray Visor and destroyed using a Super Missile or a number of Missiles. It can be obtained on Samus's first visit to Magmoor Caverns if the player knows where it is.
