- "It's a fuel mostly been mined out on Abafar. It's volatile and dangerous."
When poured out of its container, rhydonium appeared like spilled chrome. It could be scraped up and salvaged, but only under a high degree of safety measures, as rhydonium was dangerous to exposed skin.
The Confederacy of Independent Systems extracted rhydonium from a secret mining installation on Abafar and loaded it onto the captured Venator-class Star Destroyer Renown in a failed attempt to pilot it into and destroy the Republic space station Valor, which was hosting the Republic strategy conference.
Fourteen years after the end of the Clone Wars, rhydonium was present in Fort Anaxes, a base abandoned by the Republic, and was used by rebels Sabine Wren and Hera Syndulla to kill fyrnocks, which were threatening the two.
