Diamonds are one of the rarest Items found in the game. The strongest variant of Armor, Tools, and weapons can be made from Diamonds.

Diamonds are usually found underground near Y=12 level. They spawn very rarely in Caves. Diamonds can also occasionally be found in Villages, Desert Temples, Nether Fortresses, Jungle Temples, and Stronghold Chests.

Trivia

  • Diamond Hoes are not often used as they are considered by some to be useless, as they do not hoe things much faster than lower-tier tools such as Gold or Wood.
    • Diamond Hoes, however, have the highest durability. It is often paired with Unbreaking for a reliable farming tool.
  • Enchanting an Iron or Diamond Pickaxe with the Fortune enchantment is an efficient way to get many Diamonds, as each level of the enchantment increases the maximum drop count.
  • It is a false belief that Diamonds can only be found near Lava.
    • However, they are commonly found near it.
  • The only way to obtain Diamond Ore in Survival Mode is using a Pickaxe with the Silk Touch Enchantment.
  • Diamond tools are the only ones that are non-renewable.
  • Contrary to popular belief, Diamond Tools are not the fastest in the game. Gold Tools are quite a bit faster than Diamond Tools.
    • For example, it takes 0.3 seconds to mine Stone with a Diamond Pickaxe while it takes a Golden Pickaxe 0.2 seconds.
