Universe : Prime Timeline
Name : Magnesite1

Solid substance. Magnesite is occasionally found in comets; it is hard enough to crack drill bits, making drilling into such comets difficult.2 Drilling through magnesite is difficult even using phaser drills, as it creates feedback pulses along the particle beam, a problem Geordi encountered on the planet Atrea in 2370.3 The Duras sisters Lursa and B'Etor conducted illegal mining for magnesite on Kalla III; Riker obtained some of the ore and detonated it in space with a phaser blast to reveal the location of their cloaked ship.4 Magnesite-nitron tablets were a standard part of a landing party medical kit in the 2260s.1 Magnesite dust formed a part of the living nebula cloud which Voyger encountered in 2371.5 Voyager explored magnesite deposits on a planet in the Avery system later in the same year.6 In the 2150s Magnesite was used in construction of warp cores on Earth vessels7, and the Kazon Nistrim used it in the construction of their frigates in the 2370s.8 Magnesite fuel was commonly used for small scale applications such as heating and cooking in the mid 24th century.9 Transporters cannot beam an object through magnesite.10
