At pressures between four and six gigapascals and temperatures between 800degC and 1100degC, corresponding to depths of between 120 and 180 km below the surface, they found salts formed with a balance of sodium and potassium that closely matches the small traces found in diamonds.
The pressures that formed these deeper diamonds are estimated at approximately 24 to 25 gigapascals, which is about 224 times more pressure than exists at the bottom the ocean's deepest point in its Mariana Trench.

Calculations using precise models based on the atomic structure of cellulose show that the crystals have a stiffness of 206 gigapascals, which is comparable to steel, said Pablo Zavattieri, assistant professor of civil engineering at a Purdue University in West Lafayette, Ind.
From these methods, ultrasonic methods utilize a few gigapascals (GPa) where Brillouin spectroscopy measurements are limited to 25 GPa [1].
By compressing a mineral between two diamonds, she's able to exert gigapascals of pressure--which simulates how minerals might behave deep within the Earth.
The modulus of elasticity, a measure of a material's ability to deform under pressure, for bone is generally between 10 and 30 gigapascals. For titanium, a commonly used material in medical implants, the modulus of elasticity is upwards of 100 gigapascals.
