Diamond Destruction!

Today, Marco in 1EW, came to visit Mr. Weber to talk about crystals.  We talked about how crystals form, how crystals get their colour, and also how to cut crystals.  This led us to talking about diamond blades, because diamonds are the hardest thing on earth.  That means they can be put on the blade of a saw, and then you can use that saw to cut through ALMOST ANYTHING!  We’re talking about the hardest things you can think of, like limestone, metal, and concrete.

Check out this awesome video that we watched.  In this video, you’ll see a guy cutting through all sorts of things.  It’s so so cool!
