Kazuda Xiono's lucky trophy was made of aurodium

Aurodium was a type of metallic yellow-colored metal rarer than gold.[1] It was rumored that alchemical forges on the planet Ossus were used to turn lead into aurodium. It[2] shared its name with the aurodium standard for currency.[3]

History[]

Imperial Era[]

In 14 BBY,[4] the fugitive Jedi Padawan Cal Kestis acquired enough aurodium to fashion a lightsaber hilt.[5]

Han Solo was in possession of aurodium-plated dice during his time as a scrumrat on Corellia.[6] Dryden Vos, leader of Crimson Dawn, wore an aurodium ring.[7]

New Republic Era[]

During the Cold War, the pilot Kazuda Xiono won a trophy made of aurodium from a race.[8] After the Battle of Starkiller Base, General Leia Organa wore a pair of golden aurodium earrings.[9] The Ubdurian Cratinus wore a belt that had a buckle made of aurodium.[10]

Currency on Cantonica was made from aurodium and the standard on the planet rather than New Republic credits, which were considered volatile. Anyone looking to spend money in the planet's casinos had to first exchange their funds for the resort's standard.[11] Landonis Balthazar Calrissian wore a ring made from the material.[12]

Behind the scenes[]

Aurodium first appeared in the Star Wars Legends novel Rogue Planet, released on May 2, 2000.[13] It was introduced to Star Wars canon in the video game Star Wars: Uprising.[14] Aurodium features in the video game Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes as the most expensive datapack type.

The metal's name was inspired by the real chemical element gold and its symbol in the periodic table of elements: Au,[1] which in turn is derived from the Latin aurum.
