Elements are a type of resource in No Man's Sky. They use a periodic table made up of real-life elements and minerals, as well as some fictional elements that Hello Games created to keep the sci-fi feel to the game. Elements are mined and gathered from planets, asteroids, as well as trace amounts from flora, they are used to create alloys and technology upgrades for the Exosuit, Starships, and Multi-tools.

There are five types of elements: isotopes (red), oxides (yellow), silicates (blue), neutral (green), and precious (purple)[1]. Update 1.3 Introduced a six classification, Compressed Atmospheric Gasses (Dark green).
