Basic Information

Muonium is a man-made element that is similar to hydrogen, except instead of Proton at its core, it has a Antimuon. Muonium can be made in a particle accelerator, by shooting a beam of anti-muons through a piece of gold foil. As of the time of writing, Muonium has only been made in extremely small amounts, partly because the antimuons that comprise it are extremely short lived (we're talking nanoseconds).

Because of the tiny amounts made and its short lifetime, we have yet to thoroughly analyze the properties of Muonium. It's expected to behave very much like hydrogen and have similar properties, but it's also theoretically possible that it might be a form of exotic matter with the opposite reaction to gravity that hydrogen (and all normal matter) has.
