Meteorite Crystal

Crystal Maze: Captain Mandi, Karen and the Meteorite Storm

Meteorite crystals, like diamonds?

Awhile ago, probably 6 months, I saw a story about a company which makes synthetic minerals of the material which is otherwise only available as tiny crystals in meteorites.

The minerals are almost as hard as diamonds and have cosmetic and industrial purposes.

What is the mineral? Which is the company?
I think it has a weird name like romibium.

What is "dispersion"?

It's not moissanite. Moissanite is a Mohs scale approximately 9.25, diamond is a 10.

The mineral you're thinking of is lonsdaleite (an allotrope of carbon). However, keep in mind, there are different type of hardness. When it comes to "scratchability" hardness, diamond still rules. Lonsdaleite has a higher compressive hardness, but not scratch hardness.

There is another mineral, and wurtzite boron nitride (w-BN) that they are creating in labs which is harder than diamond (again, compressive, not scratch), but it does *not* occur in nature, not even in meteorites.
