- "I've been to Tatooine, actually, and bagged a krayt dragon there. Its pearls paid for the upgrades on the Jewel."
- ―Nakari Kelen, to Luke Skywalker
Krayt dragon pearls were concretions that could be found in the bodies of krayt dragons, a species of large creatures that could be found on the desert world of Tatooine. Those pearls were regarded as valuable. The former senator Johhar Kessen, a notorious big game hunter, regarded a polished Krayt dragon pearl paperweight as the ultimate trophy on Tatooine.
