Tylinium is a rare metal used in heavy construction.

Tylinium can also be converted into transparent tylinium. Transparent tylinium is virtually indestructible material formed out of tylinium used in the construction of Celestial chambers (TOS: "The Hand of God").

Tylinium is not to be confused with the fuel, tylium.
