Diamond (Gem)




Yes (64)



First Appearance

Update 0.3.2

Diamonds are Items added in Update 0.3.2.


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.



Diamonds are used to craft Enchantment Tables, and variants of Tools, Armor, and Weapons.


  • Diamonds are one of the rarest Items in Minecraft Pocket Edition.
  • Diamond Hoes are not often used as they are considered by some to be useless, as they do not hoe things 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, as there is nothing in the code to suggest so.
  • Diamond tools are the only ones that are non-renewable.
  • Before Update 0.12.1, Diamonds could be used to craft a Nether Reactor Core.
  • Contrary to popular belief, Diamond Tools are not the fastest in the game. Gold Tools are slightly 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.
