Taydenite is the rarest gem in the Milky Way Galaxy. Vulkanus is known to deal in it. It can also be used to power star ships.
Taydenite first appeared in the episode Kevin's Big Score. When Kevin arrives looking to obtain an important item (a holo-viewer from Grandpa Max), Vulkanus decides to get back at him for a previous betrayal by forcing Kevin to recursively absorb a small piece of Taydenite which his minions continued to mine off of him giving Vulkanus an endless supply. However, he is foiled by Ben and Gwen who arrive to save Kevin. Rather than attempt to arrest him, however, Kevin leaves Vulkanus with the small fortune in crystals he had managed to chip off beforehand, considering it as payment for his past actions.
In Con of Rath, the group needed some Taydenite to power their ship. They encountered Vulkanus and his minions, fighting them for the Taydenite. Ben (as Rath) unleashed a shockwave that ruined most of Vulkanus' supply.
