A piece of chromium

Chromium, also known as chrome, was a rare and valuable mineral that could be used as currency[1] as well as plating for a starship.[2] In the Naboo culture, a ship plated with chromium signified the presence of royalty.[2] Even after stepping down as Queen of Naboo, Padmé Amidala continued to travel in ships fully clad in chromium.[3]

To resist interdimensional shift stress, hyperdrive systems typically required a specific alloy of chromium and titanium.[4] Pure chromium had the ability to block communications.[5]

The armor worn by Captain Phasma of the First Order was coated in chromium salvaged from a Naboo yacht once owned by Emperor Palpatine. The polished finish of that armor was capable of reflecting certain harmful radiations. Phasma's blaster rifle was also coated in chromium.[6]

In the Anoat sector, the Trandoshan Brask, who operated a requisitions depot on Burnin Konn during the Iron Blockade, offered select inventory in exchange for chromium.[1]

Despite its gold-like shine, C-3PO's hull actually had a chromium finish.[7]
