The Artifact of Newborn

The Artifact of Newborn 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 Newborn is at the end of a treacherous maze, called the Phazon Mining Tunnel, in the Phazon Mines. Because the entire maze is laced with hazardous Phazon, the Phazon Suit should be acquired before attempting to retrieve this artifact.
