Cubic boron nitride insert.
This very expensive ($70 list, $20 on eBay) milling bit insert is only about half an inch wide, but incredibly hard and long-wearing in applications involving continuous cutting of hardened steels (grade BNX20). For that price it better be!
It has a cubic boron nitride coating over a cemented tungsten carbide base.
