Aurodium: Misc



Up to date as of February 04, 2010

From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

Aurodium was an element that, when mined, purified, and formed into ingots, was used as currency in the Outer Rim Territories and other lawless territories where Republic credits were useless, much like nova crystals. Aurodium lacked a specific color, instead sparkling. Aurodium ingots yielded a high load when converted into credits, as was usually the case. Darth Sidious' lightsaber was partially constructed with aurodium.

In 29 BBY, ten large ingots of aurodium were worth three billion credits; however, although the ingots were considered large, all of them were combined small enough to keep inside a pouch that was easily concealed on a person.

Behind the scenes

Aurodium is obviously intended to be the Star Wars version of gold. The first two letters of aurodium are "Au", which is a common prefix for gold-related words and the periodic symbol for gold. However, "gold" has been mentioned in other Star Wars sources.
