Have scientists really found something harder than diamond?

Ask most people what the hardest material on Earth is and they will probably answer “diamond”. Its name comes from the Greek word ἀδάμας (adámas) meaning “unbreakable” or “invincible” and is from where we get the word “adamant”. Diamond’s hardness gives it incredible cutting abilities that – along with its beauty – have kept it in high demand for thousands of years.
