    “As if being a superhero isn’t already hard enough. Now scientists in Serbia have uncovered a new mineral with virtually the same chemical makeup as kryptonite, the green crystals powerful enough to bring even the Man of Steel to his knees. The mineral, sodium lithium boron silicate hydroxide, will be called jadarite after the Jada mine where it was found”

    Krypton is a noble gas. At room temperature and pressure, the only things it will form stable compounds with are extremely

    reactive, i.e. fluorine.


    In chemistry, the -ite suffix has a specific meaning. The chemical “kryptonite” cannot exist, and even if it could cnet’s “sodium lithium boron silicate hydroxide” would be nothing like it.

    Sooooooooo… you object to Kryptonite. But you’re okay with Superman.

    Actually, they tried to give him some shots for his kryptonite allergies, but the needles all broke.
