Disambig.png This article is about the Atlas Rises version of Trade commodities. For the Beyond version, see Tradeable.

Trade commodities are items that can be traded for units with aliens or at the Galactic Trade Terminal.


Some trade commodities can be found as naturally occurring on planet surfaces such as Albumen Pearls, Vortex Cubes, and Gravitino Balls. Gathering these resources will trigger a detachment of Sentinels.

Trade commodities can also be found in Cargo Drops.

Some of these commodities are also used in crafting.

Commodities for NPC races[]

There are three trade commodities corresponding to each of the three alien races:


Geknip, Gek Relic, Gek Charm.


Fascination Bead, Korvax Convergence Cube, Korvax Casing.


Grahgrah, Vy'keen Dagger, Vy'keen Effigy.

These are typically found in the green cases or given at certain events such as monoliths/ruins.

Commodities for crafting[]

In addition, apart from the Atlas Stone, there are five trade commodities which are used in crafting: Aquasphere, Gravitino Ball, Dimensional Matrix, Albumen Pearl, and Vortex Cubes.

These five can be found and picked up as hidden/restricted resources in certain locations on certain planets. Doing so in most circumstances will alert Sentinels to attack. As trade commodities all of these can also be found to purchase.
