An iron asteroid located in the Corellia system

"But the battle droids are non-magnetic!"
"Yes… But lava contains iron—and the volcano doused your droids with it!"
Reynar and Obi-Wan Kenobi[src]

Iron was an element commonly found in asteroids and, occasionally, on planets. It could be extracted from the iron ore minerals magnetite and hematite.[1] Ruusan was said to have significant deposits of iron.[2] Mandalore also had deposits of especially strong Mandalorian iron.

Iron was used in the making of many objects. It was used with concrete to make Ferrocrete. Pummelstaves were constructed from tubes of iron. The city of Thousand Thousand on Makem Te had structures composed of iron, which survived several wars with little exterior damage.[3] The door to the palace of Jabba the Hutt was made of iron.[4]
