auraxiumbelt

The Auraxium Belt is a collection of an estimated 700,000 asteroids, more than half of which contain a significant auraxium component, encircling Luminaire. It was here that humanity first observed the exotic crystal while evaluating the torrid inner planets for potential colonization. Little attention was paid to it, however. Given the desperate situation the fleet found itself in, a few anomalous readings from scans of space rocks hardly seemed significant.
