+55/-27 X is a silvery-white metallic chemical element in the actinide series of the periodic table. Discovery of X is credited to chemist Martin Heinrich Klaproth who in 1789, was able to precipitate a yellow compound, and he named this after a planet which was discovered eight years earlier.

+50/-25

Aside from the original crew and Whitebeard, before their death, no one actually knows where the great treasure is. Given the recurring theme of treasure being something of great personal value, X may simply be an item that the captain valued.

Artistic interpretations of a certain item. Which item?

+40/-20

One of the explanations for the initials in X, is that it may represent the colour scheme of the item. In the anime, no one was able to figure out how to open X. They tried to open it with hacksaws, hammers, crowbars, power drills and lasers, but to no avail. The protagonist tried uttering certain commands, which usually succeed with items of Xs kind, but X still fails to open.

+35/-17

This is a picture of Ksitigarbha holding a cintamani. The cintamani has a much more popular version in the West. What is that version?

+30/-15 X is a room-temperature superconductor, making it very valuable. It is worth $20 million per kilogram in its unrefined state. However it is expensive to mine, as its local environment is toxic to humans. X has a unique magnetic field and properties of superconductivity, causing it to levitate in magnetic fields.
On its native planet, the magnetic effect causes huge outcroppings of X to rip out of the surface and float in the magnetic vortices. These islands famously known as the Hallelujah Mountains.

+25/-12
Considering an XY lucky is an ancient tradition in much of the world. At least as far back as the seventh century BCE, the X was a talismanic symbol in Africa, and in Celtic Europe, X were considered lucky as well. Thus keeping a part of the X was considered good fortune, and a Y was a handy means by which to benefit from the luck of the X.

+20/-10

The X is a legendary manuscript written by a revered master that contains the secret to "limitless power". The prophecy goes that only the _____ would be worthy enough to read the X. It rested for nearly a thousand years at the back of the Hall of Warriors just above the Moon Pool in the mouth of a golden ____ statue, until the events of the first film.

+15/-7
The film X contained an inordinate amount of smoking. This caused a dispute between the stars and the studio head Jack L Warner. Warner did not like to see his stars smoke on screen, as he thought it prompted audiences to step out into the lobby to have a smoke. He told the director that smoking must be kept to a minimum. However, when the next series of rushes came back, it was obvious that the lack of smoking by the actors was taking away from the sinister mood of the scene. The director went back to Jack Warner, and convinced him that the smoking added the right amount of atmospheric tension to the story, arguing that the characters would smoke cigarettes while waiting nervously for the X to arrive.
