Kelbonite is a refractory metal which is capable of deflecting or interfering with scans and energy beams, such as transporters, and can be found naturally on many planets. (TNG episode: "Silicon Avatar")
The planet Naia VII was rich in kelbonite, among other valuable materials. A Starfleet Corps of Engineers mining operation there in 2368 excavated these, which were vital for Starfleet to rebuild its strength following the Battle of Wolf 359. (TNG - Assimilation² comic: "Issue 2")
The mountains on Ba'ku colony world contained kelbonite ore, which in 2375, proved useful in preventing the Ba'ku from being forcibly relocated from their world by the Son'a. (TNG novelization: Insurrection)
In the mirror universe the walls of the Sakethan burial mounds located on New T'Karath contained traces of kelbonite mixed with limestone. In September 2371, this impeded Jean-Luc Picard's ability to be able to transport himself away with a segment of the Stone of Gol. (TNG - Mirror Universe novel: The Worst of Both Worlds)
