    Lots of people believe that a diamond can be destroyed by crushing them but that's not correct. If you will crush them then they will break into tiny pieces but that's not a complete destruction. There are two ways to destroy Diamond completely :- 1. Heat it to over 1455 degrees in the presence of oxygen and it will result in breaking of diamond molecules to break into carbon bonds. 2. Heat the Diamond at a temperature of 100 degrees and then place it in liquid oxygen. It will react with heat and liquid oxygen and turn into carbon dioxide.
