Neutral elements are one of the original five divisions of the periodic table in No Man's Sky

Summary[edit | edit source]

Neutral elements can be combined with other elements, such as Iron, for crafting purposes.

All elements in the Neutral family have an icon with a green background when shown in the players inventory, or on the No Man's Sky periodic table.

Mining[edit | edit source]

These elements can be found in rock formations (metallic), plants (plant compounds), and destroyed technology (waste).

Members[edit | edit source]

Known members of the Neutral elements family are split into three types based on their source (metal, plant, or wastes):
