Diamond Ore
Diamond Ore is one of the most important ores in the game. This block, when mined with an Iron Pickaxe or higher (not enchanted with Silk Touch), will yield 1 Diamond normally, and up to four if the player has a Fortune enchantment on their pickaxe. Diamond Ore is very rare and usually spawns in veins of 1-6 blocks. It only occurs below level 15. Lava lakes also spawn at this level, so beware while mining. A Water Bucket is handy for crossing these. A Pickaxe made of diamonds is the only one capable of mining obsidian, but it still takes 9 seconds by default.

Diamond Ore is often found near lava, making it dangerous to mine.

Diamond Ore is found with many other ores, deep in the caves.

Trivia

  • Emerald Ore is rarer than Diamond Ore only  because it occurs in Extreme Hills Biomes only. However, in those biomes, it is more common than Diamond Ore.
  • Tools made of diamonds have the most durability.
