Isothermal bulk modulus are a girls best friend.

" The hardness of a material is measured by its isothermal bulk modulus. Aggregated diamond nanorods have a modulus of 491 gigapascals (GPa), compared with 442 GPa for conventional diamond."
Move over diamonds.  Here's something meatier.  Researchers have created a substance that is harder than diamond.  it will be used mostly for industrial purposes.
Those crazy humans.  What will they think of next?
