- "I trade basic stock, necessities, for Requisition Scrip. But for Chromium? I have special items, hard to procure. Best in entire sector."
Chromium, also known as chrome, was a rare and valuable elemental metal that could be used as currency as well as plating for a starship. In the Naboo culture, a ship plated with chromium signified the presence of royalty. Even after stepping down as Queen of Naboo, Padmé Amidala continued to travel in ships fully clad in chromium.
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.
