    I'm convinced that even the bendable Rock would break if you hit it like you did the non-bendable rock. I would have wanted to see you try to bend the normal rock with the same pressure you used to bend the bendable rock. Or Hit the bendable Rock with the same force as you did the normal rock otherwise it's not comparable with What would happen.

    Might be that there is a minuscule amount of air between each connection, allowing for moderate movement (and it would make a bit of sense since there’s sometimes diamonds in them). It would’ve been formed from millions of years ago during carbonization.

    the rock may be bendable because the materials in quartz are somewhat light, and similar to gold, the atoms are separated a little more than supposed, other materials such as diamonds in there rock make the rock a little more bendable, there’s your solution.

      Itacolumite is a naturally occurring porous, yellow sandstone that is flexible when cut into thin strips. It occurs at Itacolumi, in the southern portion of Minas Gerais, Brazil. It is also found in Kaliana village (Charkhi Dadri district, Haryana, India);[1] Georgia in the US; and Stokes and McDowell counties of North Carolina. It is the best and most widely known example of a flexible sandstone and is a source of diamonds found in the Minas Gerais area.

    does it still have the rough texture of rock, because that would make it way weirder

    Wait, question, are bendable rocks malleable at all or are they just less brittle and hard?

    "Sometimes you can find diamonds in them!"
    I can buy diamonds at a dozen shops in town but I can't buy a bendy rock so this is way more cool!

      @Imperial Wtiter Nah, definitely not. And plastic is a wide term; there's PET, Polystyrene & PVC. Also, they have completely different molecular formulae from diamond and coal.

      Wierd fact: diamonds, coal and plastic are same thing, but with different molecular structures. So. Plastic diamonds = real diamonds, but cheaper.

      @Stranded Diamond and graphite are different forms of carbon. Meaning they are the same elementally, but the atomic structure of Diamond makes it harder than Graphite. Moh's hardness of a Graphite is around 1-3. As far as I know, though I'm not quite updated with Material Sciences these days, is there's no material harder than a diamond. Also, Diamond can be manufactured in a lab. I hope this is informative.
