For gliding points, as well as for some ball bearings, different kinds of ceramic (and similar) materials are used: Zirconium Oxide (ZrO2), Silicon Nitride (Si3N4), Silicon Carbide (SiC), Synthetic Ruby (Al2O3:Cr), Aluminium Oxide (Al2O3) etc.

Some in-depth information about particular material properties could be found on manufacturer's web pages:
