Aurodium was a type of golden metal rarer than gold, which also existed in the form of a blue crystal. It found use in the modification of equipment as well as luxury items such as trophies and earrings. It was rumored that alchemical forges on the planet Ossus were used to turn lead into aurodium.
Han Solo was in possession of aurodium-plated dice during his time as a scrumrat on Corellia. Dryden Vos, leader of Crimson Dawn, wore an aurodium ring. During the cold war, the pilot Kazuda Xiono won a trophy made of aurodium from a race. After the Battle of Starkiller Base, General Leia Organa wore a pair of golden aurodium earrings.
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.
Behind the scenesEdit
Aurodium first appeared in the Star Wars Legends novel Rogue Planet, released on May 2, 2000. It was introduced to Star Wars canon in the video game Star Wars: Uprising. Aurodium features in the non-canon video game Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes as the most expensive datapack type.
