Common Resources: These resources can be found everywhere throughout the game - the jungle, villages, tombs, and temples. Common resources consist of hardwood, feathers, focus plants, medicinal plants, perception plants, fat, black powder, cloth, and animal hides.
All of these can be used to craft ammunition, heal Lara, and upgrade weapons, as well as so much more.
Exotic Resources: These resources are harder to find due to how scarce they are throughout the game. They include Gold Ore and Jade, which can be sold to merchants for coins, as well as salvage, special feathers, and unique hides which are required for crafting and upgrading the best equipment.
All resources can be highlighted using Survival Instincts.
