Diamond no longer world’s hardest material, still girl’s best friend


Our friends at Luxuo are reporting that scientists no longer believe that diamond is nature’s hardest material. The gemstone is replaced by a rare natural substance, called lonsdaleite, which is made from carbon atoms just like diamond. According to a report in New Scientist, lonsdaleite is 58 per cent harder than diamond. 

Unfortunately, diamond is still a girl’s best friend meaning our pockets will still be getting drained.
