Uridium is an unstable mineral. In its raw form uridium would explode when exposed to an electrical charge. (DS9 episode: "Civil Defense")

The Cardassians used uridium alloy in the construction of their sensor arrays. During the Occupation of Bajor the Cardassians mined uridium, which was processed with the help of Bajoran slave labor on the station Terok Nor. (DS9 episodes: "Indiscretion", "Civil Defense"; DS9 comic: "No Time Like the Present")

Likewise, Starfleet required uridium for shipbuilding, especially during the Dominion War. (DS9 novelization: Far Beyond the Stars)

In the early 2370s, a tectonic shift revealed a vein of uridium on the floor of one of Tellar's oceans. Janus Mining won the contract to mine the ore for the Federation. (ST novel: A Singular Destiny)
