You can determine whether a creature, object (including magical items), or area is affected by a curse. You can determine the exact type of curse and its effects with a DC 20 Knowledge (arcana) check.

This spell does not function when used on an artifact. The spell can penetrate barriers, but 1 foot of stone, 1 inch of common metal, a thin sheet of lead, or 3 feet of wood or dirt blocks it. If the item touched has a curse invoked by touching it, you immediately know about the curse while possibly being affected by it.
