What would happen if you try to crush a diamond with a hydraulic press? Would the hardest substance (as we know it) resist the pressure?
The answer is given to us by enthusiasts from Hydraulic Press Channel on Youtube. They took a genuine 1,2 carat certified diamond, worth about 4000 US dollars to test. Whether or not the press will manage to crush the stone you can find out yourself by watching the following video.
While diamond is indeed one of the hardest terrestrial substances, it is very far from being undestructable. Even if you don’t go anywhere near hydraulic press with your diamond jewels, we suggest you treat your gemstones gently.
