This article is about Diamond. For other diamond-related objects found in Minecraft, see Diamond (disambiguation).

Diamond is a rare, valuable mineral used to craft Tools, Armor, Enchantment Tables, Jukeboxes, and Blocks of Diamond. It is obtainable by mining Diamond Ore, which does not require smelting unless it is mined using a pickaxe with the Silk Touch enchantment on it. Diamonds can also be found rarely as dungeon loot in Strongholds, Nether Fortresses, Desert Temples, End Cities, Jungle Temples, Village Blacksmith Chests, and in Abandoned Mineshafts.

One diamond can be collected from one block of diamond ore when it is mined, unless a player is using a pickaxe with the fortune Enchantment on it, since it has a chance to make more than one diamond drop from the mined ore. Diamonds are considered one of the most valuable items in the game, due to their rarity and usefulness as a hard crafting material. Tools and armor made from it are the most durable and the strongest in the game.

Diamonds, like Creepers, have become iconic to the game. Diamonds can be found in a variety of places, but they tend to generate near underground Lava beds because it is commonly found in the same layers as lava beds. They are the third hardest mineral in Vanilla Minecraft. Diamonds are the second rarest mineral in Minecraft, the rarest mineral being Emeralds.

Trivia

  • In the source code for Minecraft Indev, diamonds were titled emerald. When the Emerald was added, this was corrected back to diamond.
  • Gold tools mine faster than diamond tools. However, the latter can mine a bigger variety of blocks, and last considerably longer.
  • Diamonds are the second rarest ore, while the rarest ore that can be found in Vanilla Minecraft is Emerald Ore, since it can only be found in the Extreme Hills Biomes.
  • In Minecraft Indev, diamond tools used to be very weak.
    • Also in earlier versions Minecraft Indev, most diamonds can be found on the upper cave systems, rather than in the lower cave systems.
