Diamond is a metastable of carbon, it is less stable than graphite. Diamond has the highest hardness and thermal conductivity of any material, In major industries, diamond is used in cutting and polishing tools.
Tritium is a radioactive form of hydrogen,made from natural cosmic rays and synthetically in nuclear reaction. Tritium is used in fusion reactors and neutron generators. The radioactive decay of tritium is a low energy beta.
5. Taaffeite Stone
Taaffeite Stone was discovered by Edward Taaffe in 1945. It is made up of magnesium, beryllium and aluminum. Taaffeite Stone is used as a gemstone.
Painte was discovered by Arthur C.D. in 1950. Pain is so rare and most people did not know what it is.
