A rather unstudied topic, certain materials react in different ways to anomalous effects due to core aspects of their chemical structure. Certain properties make these materials and compounds useful in a variety of different ways.
Typically, cuil flux is capable of passing through most materials with little resistance depending on its density. More dense cuil flux will resist physical mass more. Some materials, however, are either more easy or more hard for cuil flux to suffuse. This material property is called flux conductivity. Flux conductivity typically just affects psionic abilities and technology that uses cuil flux. Abilities that utilize changing the quality of flux will be less effective against a strong flux insulator like salt if the flux has to make physical contact with it, and flux constructs may feel discomfort or pain when in the presence of strong flux insulators, and flux infusing an insulator will fade faster. On the contrary, flux conductors such as aetherium are more easily affected by flux. Flux infusing a flux conductor will take longer to fade.
Neural Tissue - Neural tissue such as brain matter is an ideal conductor of flux. Psions passively generate flux from their nervous system.
Organic Tissue - Organic tissue in general (including animalian flesh and plant matter) is an adequate conductor of flux.
Mana - Mana is an ideal conductor of flux, one of the only inorganic materials to be an ideal conductor due to its anomalous nature.
Aetherium - Aetherium's flux conductivity depends on its percentage of mana. Higher percentages of mana will make it more conductive, but also make the alloyed metal weaker.
Octiron - Octiron can best be thought of as a flux 'superconductor' that can conduct and store large amounts of flux like a battery. However, flux stored in this way typically cannot be used for psionic abilities.
Noble Metals - The noble metals of the periodic table include ruthenium, rhodium, palladium, osmium, iridium, platinum, gold, and silver, as well as mercury and to a limited extent, copper, are all adequate flux conductors. Mercury in particular is unique due to it being a liquid at room temperature.
Prisilite - Prisilite is a good flux conductor. It functions similarly to octarine in that it can direct and project flux through the air or through a conductor, as if giving it force.
Ionic Crystals - Solid ionic crystals such as potassium chloride, sodium fluoride, and popularly sodium chloride - common called 'salt', are strong flux insulators due to their strong ionic bonds and orderly crystalline structure that seems to favor a stable reality. Used by some cultures to ward off 'evil spirits', as the presence or physical contact of ionic crystals such as salt can be uncomfortable and painful to a flux construct or defiant. Larger crystals work better.
Smudgestick Smoke - Smoke emitted from a proper smudgestick created from anomalous herbs is an adequate flux insulator, useful for impeding the flux in wider areas.
Normantium - Extremely strong flux insulator, to the point where flux simply just cannot pass through it like a barrier if it is thick enough. Also repels anomalous flow due to its property as a negative cuil emitter, making it able to block and resist psionic effects.
Trianglium - Similar to normantium, but with a stronger effect.
