CBSE - X - Chemistry - Carbon and Its Compounds

We know diamond is hardest due to its rigid structrure and covalant bond .If we take berylium (others too like silicon ) and made the similar structure as of diamond ( i know we can't but as science is advance so if we take 2 more electrons from berylium and insert them in another berylium having 4e-  and in case of silicon it has similar valance as carbon ) and make them having covalnt bond as well as similar structure as of carbon .. then can the substance form be hardest ?
