Elarium is a mysterious mineral with seemingly infinite possible applications. This is why the Akari Ishi see it as a part of their worshiped deity. While the mineral itself is still poorly understood, scientists discovered that it uses resonant frequencies, changing the way subatomic particles interact, creating properties previously unknown to mankind. In a sense it is an acoustic effect – a discovery made by French-Canadian composer Jacques Dupont.
After the discovery of various ancient sites holding concentrations of Elarium, scientists were shocked to conclude that the precious mineral was in fact not native to Earth. It rather had to be deposited for cultivation by unknown intelligent entities at some point in ancient history. Much has been speculated about its origins and whether the intelligent civilization in question would be the mysterious ancestors of the Akari.
While Elarium provided levels of advancement unparalleled to human history after centuries of stagnation, its integration society would come with a high cost.
