Watch out Superman!

jadarite.jpgRemember Kryptonite-the substance that would rob Superman of his super powers? A mineral was recently discovered that has the same composition as the material that would weaken our super hero friend.

Unlike the glowing green crystals depicted in the comic books and movies, this mineral is a white, powdery substance, and is not radioactive.

The mineral will be officially named “jadarite” because it was discovered in a mine located around Jadar, Serbia this past November.


  1. Let’s just hope no one comes here from outer space after that stuff starts turning green!!!!!!!!!!

  2. I like Kryptonite better than Jadarite. Why couldn’t they keep the name when they discovered the mineral?
