Structure of "Borazon" (Cubic boron nitride):

(1) In contrast to graphite, layered boron nitride is stable in air up to 1000°C, making it a useful refractory material. Layered boron nitride changes into a denser cubic phase at high pressures and temperatures (60 kbar and 3000 degree centigrade). And the denser and cubic form of this boron nitride is known as “Borazon”  and its structure is similar to diamond.

(2) The of “Borazon” is similar to that of diamond and it is stable at high temperature.

(3)The extreme hardness of Borazon is due to fact that the B-N bond. The B-N bond possess covalent character comparable to C-C bond of diamond and more important that B-N bond also some ionic stabilization due to electronegativity difference  boron and nitrogen atom.
