The hardest substance is diamond
Until now, the diamond is considered to be the hardest or the hardest thing in the world. But this is not correct. Until 2009, diamonds were considered the hardest thing in the world. But scientists have discovered two rare minerals harder than diamonds. These two minerals are boron nitride wurtzite and lonsdaleite.
