Diamond vs the Hydraulic Press
Many of us are aware of the hydraulic machine and what it can do. In other words, it is the process which can mindlessly crush many things. The big question is can it crush the hardest material i.e. diamond for that matter?
Let us just find out how this works and its effect on the diamond.
What is Hydraulic Press?
A video is taking the brownie points on the YouTube these days where the researchers displayed the destruction of all the things using a hydraulic machine. It is widely known as The Hydraulic Press Channel. Their fame was drastically increased because of the recent experiment which reveals the ability to destruct anything which is placed under the hydraulic press.

The channel is all about crazily crushing random things. They use the hydraulic machine to crush all the things. This mind-blowing idea was viewed by millions of users around the world.
A Hydraulic Press was used to crush something that was utterly unique and was never thought of. They decided to crush diamond into pieces. It is one of the hardest materials in the world. The task was not that easy as it looked to be. Let us see what happens when they start their experiment.
The Crushed Diamond
The diamond that was used for experiment under the Hydraulic Press and crushed into pieces was gifted by a diamond retailer. It was worth $4000 and 1.2 karats with all the necessary certificates to prove that it was an authentic diamond. This was surprising for many as who would give away such a precious stone for an experiment.
The Broken Heart
The Diamond was put under the machine and it was then crushed into pieces to everyone’s surprise. Diamonds are usually scratch free but that does not mean it cannot be crushed. The defect could be the covalent bond which makes it hard and fragile. This may be because of the poor cut.
This interesting yet heartbreaking experiment did reveal many facts. Hydraulic Press Channel proved to be mindlessly crushing anything and everything. Diamonds cannot even stop them.
