Duranium was a naturally occuring, extremely strong metallic, substance. Due to its abundance in numerous planetary cores, duranium was used for hull construction for starships and facilities by numerous races across the Milky Way galaxy. (DS9 reference: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Technical Manual)

In the early 2370s, the Europani began creating sculptures from duranium, and they became quite popular amongst the population. (DS9 novel: Demons of Air and Darkness)

Applications

Duranium shadows

In combat situations, duranium shadows can be used to fool enemy sensors into believing that there is a large stockpile of weapons located at the position that they are scanning. In 2369, Chief Miles O'Brien and the crew of Deep Space 9 were able to fool Gul Jasad and his attack force that the station was more heavily fortified than they believed. (DS9 novelization: Emissary)

From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

Duranium was a substance much stronger than either Transparisteel or Bronzium. It was extremely durable, light, and was capable of withstanding a glancing blow from a lightsaber; however, it also had a very high melting point, making it difficult to shape. It was however, fool proof against blasters and slugthrowers, only the continuous heat of a lightsaber able to melt through it.
