Kryptonite Found!

When I first read this word, "Kryptonite", it brought the old memories of Superman and its sequels. This is the piece of mineral where it will maim Superman's power and where you would have seen the bad character in Superman movies, Lex Luther, ensuring that he gets the mineral in preparation of Superman's retaliation for his bad deeds.

I do not know whether the movie producers knew about the existence of the Kryptonite mineral during their script writing but it sure does exist now.

It seems that the real Kryptonite mineral has been discovered in Serbia. Geologists and mineralogists from mining group Rio Tinto which discovered the mineral passed the mineral to National History Museum, UK ("NHS") for further research.

This piece of Kryptonite will be known as Jadarite when it is described in the European Journal of Mineralogy. Together with NHS, Canada’s National Research Council, scientists from Natural Resources Canada, the Geological Survey of Canada and the Canadian Museum of Nature have collaborated to ensure that the new mineral is recognized by the international scientific community.
