I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

But at what temperature does it chemically break down? You obviously can't melt diamonds, you just end up with carbon powder, so if I try to melt it is it going to do the same?, perhaps only partially each time, like plastic?

What exactly are you trying to accomplish?
Are you trying to make a lump of superconducting material, a superconducting wire, or a superconducting magnet?

Are you trying to duplicate the floating magnet demonstration like the one in How to Make a Superconductor at Home?
     https://www.greenoptimistic.com/make-superconductor-home/#.Wprd8nxG1EY

The article suggests you have to reach temperatures between 950 and 1000 ºC, and that the material starts to degrade at 1020 ºC.

There is clearly a very intricate process that requires a lot of time and effort, specialized equipment, and attention to detail.  Good luck.
