You mean tungsten carbide? Regular tungsten is hard but it's only about 7.5 on the Mohs scale. Tungsten carbide ceramic is 9-9.5.
Tungsten is quite awesome as a jewelry piece. Have a ring myself made of that and has never needed to be polished or had any scratches appear on it.

Ibrahim Fadl, a chemical engineer who owns a business near 47th Street and Fifth Avenue, bought four 10-ounce gold bars and decided to check them out further since he heard counterfeits were making the rounds, MyFoxNY.com reports.
Fadl, who could not be reached for comment, told NY1.com that the shell of the gold was sold to him by a customer at his gold refinery business and peeled off like foil on a candy bar.

Wait, this guy owns a gold refinery and just blindly bought some gold from one of his customers without checking it out first? How stupid is he?

Money doesn't equal brains.
Well I guess that someone who can fork out $100 000-00 (from his own business) can't be the stupidest person on the planet. Perhaps he had bought from this person/people before and trusted them?
