Real Kryptonite Unearthed in Serbia

Scientists exploring in Serbia have discovered a new mineral which they say is composed of the same chemistry that were written in the display for a kryptonite meteorite in the movie Superman Returns. The composition is sodium lithium boron silicate hydroxide. Dr. Chris Stanley, a mineralogist at London's Natural History Museum says "I was amazed to discover that same scientific name written on a case of rock containing kryptonite stolen by Lex Luther from a museum in the film Superman Returns."

Unlike the fictional kryptonite, which is green and glows, the real one is powdery white and nonradioactive. It also won't be called Kryptonite. It will be called Jadarite.
