Rare goods are bought through the commodities menu at outposts and stations. They are only available to buy in a single system and their value increases the further you travel to sell them.

Typically the rare goods are easily spotted as they have a yellow font to stand out from the other goods which use the default orange. An example of a rare good is 'Lavian Brandy' which is only available at Lave Station in the Lave system.

To gain this achievement it is most efficient, to load up on rares from Lave, Diso, Leesti, Arque and Zaonce (all realtively close systems) and travel between 100 and 200 light years away and then sell them.

There are a number of rare trade routes and lists of rare goods easily found on the web should you be elsewhere in the galaxy or look to obtain this as part of a wider trading route.
