Chromium was a rare and valuable mineral that could be used as currency as well as plating for a starship. In the Naboo culture, a ship plated with chromium signified the presence of royalty.
The armor worn by Captain Phasma of the First Order was coated in chromium salvaged from a Naboo yacht once owned by Emperor Palpatine. The polished finish of that armor was capable of reflecting certain harmful radiations. Phasma's blaster rifle was also coated in chromium.
In the Anoat sector, the Trandoshan Brask, who operated a requisitions depot on Burnin Konn during the Iron Blockade, offered select inventory in exchange for chromium. Pure chromium had the ability to block communications.
