A hyper-dense mineral common to the majority of planets, found in large rock formations. This substance can only be extracted with a high powered laser.


Collecting Detritum in the wild

As described in the Game description, this element can be recovered from various rock formations on many planets. As it is very dense, it takes longer to harvest than many of the other resources in the game.
