Diamonds are able to conduct heat so well due to their unique physical properties. The extremely stong carbon bonds as well as the lattice structure allow heat to travel along a diamond without damaging it. Specifically, heat is conducted via the lattice vibrations, which have a high velocity and frequency, due to the strong bonding of the carbon atoms and the high symmetry of the lattice.
