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 and asteroids, and 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).
