Diamond can be broken by a lot of things actually. Just needs the right application of force.

Stones and gems are measured by two things: Hardness and Toughness.
Hardness is how easily it is scratched-- scraping a hard stone against a soft stone would scratch the surface of the soft stone.

Toughness is how easily the gem fractures. Diamond is NOT the toughest material out there. Jade is. While not easy to fracture, diamonds aren't indestructible.
