    Default Silly Superman...

    Kryptonite was never green, it is actually white! Oh! Superman, falling for mind games, are we not?

    Now, seriously, a mineral that matches kryptonite's chemistry, as it was described in Superman Returns (sodium, lithium, boron, silicate, hydroxide), was found in Serbia; the only difference being that kryptonite is supposed to have fluorine, while the one that was found in Serbia doesn't.

    Interesting if your studying chemistry or are into this stuff in general.
    Although I think most of the people here wont care much about this discovery.

    As mention in the article its pure coincidence, a big one though.

    You know, theres more than one news site. Oh and Jadarite doesn't have fluorine, while Kryptonite does

    What makes you think it's not superman who used his powers to make the kryptonite white and harmless and then digging it down?
