Murinite (abbreviated Mu) is a chemical element, a transuranic metal. Murinite is element number 123 on the periodic table. This element was discovered in history by inhabitants of Rigel IV, whose achievements were later researched by the Federation. (ST reference: Star Fleet Medical Reference Manual)

The Hill People of the Argus River region on Rigel IV used murinite to make the handles of the knives which they used. In 2267, one such knife was used to perform several murders on Argelius II. (TOS episode: "Wolf in the Fold")

Murinite could also be carved to create signs. Telsk, a receptionist at the Bureau of Interplanetary Affairs in 2293, had a nameplate carved out of a block of murinite. (TOS - Crucible novel: The Fire and the Rose)
