If you are familiar with the Superman mythos, it is the material used by Superman to create the Fortress of Solitude in ‘Action Comics #840‘ titled ‘Up, Up, and Away!’, Part VIII of VIII: The Adventures of Superman (2006).
Sunstone is a mineral indigenous to the planet Krypton. Crystalline in structure, Sunstone is self-replicating and architecturally programmable. Kryptonians used the Sunstone mineral for a great percentage of their construction including buildings and space-faring vessels. Nearly all of the Sunstone deposits were destroyed with the destruction of Krypton, but in recent years, trace elements of the crystal have been found on Earth.”
