Boron Carbide (B4C) which is sometimes called “black diamond” is a supremely hard material (Mohs hardness > 9).  Only diamond and cubic boron nitride are recognized as harder materials. Boron Carbide is produced by the reaction of Boric Acid and Carbon at high temperatures in an electric arc furnace. The material is then processed and milled for use.
