PROPS: Superman (1978) - Kryptonite Shard
Christopher Reeve’s Superman will forever be in our hearts and our TVs…of course. A prop kryptonite shard from Richard Donner’s film went to the auctions!
Ok so, Lex Luthor placed a piece of kryptonite around Superman’s neck in order to render the Man of Steel powerless. Well this piece was originally part of the kryptonite necklace utilized by Lex Luthor.
“This shard is made of clear resin and shaped like a naturally occurring crystal. The shard is finished with a green tint, giving it the appearance of the alien mineral. The back of the shard shows evidence that it was once part of a larger piece. Overall, this lot is in fine condition. Dimensions: 5 cm x 4 cm x 2.5 cm (2” x 1 ½” x 1”)”
This shard sold on September 20th, 2018 for $6,000 with the Propstore auction.
