Why diamonds are so hard and wouldn’t break?
The key to the mystery is water. Diamond is a crystallized carbon. Due to its density, no other object can get in the material. Other minerals, for example, are less denser than diamond, so that impurity would mixed in the material and react inside, which would cause the minerals to fall apart.
Also, all the objects contain water inside. When the water froze or rotten inside, the objects will fall apart. However, diamond has no space for water to get in.
When finish cutting the diamonds at the factory, they are soaked into boiling hydrochloric acid for cleansing. Even so, the diamond would not be affected.
What would happen if hydrochloric acid gets inside the diamond?
I found the relationship between the water and the diamond very interesting.
When we talked about eternity, I think of the expression that “life is eternal”.What do you think does the words mean?
