I recently got a new needle for my stereo, and it has two heads, and the box said diamond and sapphire.  Is that one of each or a composite?  Does one sound better than the other?  Does one wear faster than the other?

One side of your needle is a .7 mil. natural diamond and the other is a .7 mil synthetic sapphire or a .003 synthetic sapphire.  The .7 mil is designed to play 33 & 45 RPM records.  The .003 is designed to play 78 RPM records.

So both needles may be designed to play 33 and 45 RPM records, or one side may have the .003 synthetic sapphire to play 78 rpm.
