How To Mine Diamonds In Minecraft
Diamonds are one of the most sought-after items in Minecraft, due to their use in crafting the strongest tools, weapons, and armor available in the game. Diamonds are also one of the rarest items in Minecraft, found only in the deepest levels of rock. This makes diamonds extremely difficult to find and severely limits players' supplies of diamonds. This tutorial is intended to help players who want to obtain, maintain, and expand their diamond supply.

You must have an iron or diamond pickaxe in order to mine diamonds. A water bucket, a furnace (to smelt ores), an iron sword, iron armor, and other usual caving supplies are also suggested.

Players can use their bucket to store lava from nearby lava pools for some good smelting. But remember to store the inside water in some hole before starting the smelt.

A pickaxe with the Fortune enchantment is also advised as it will double or triple the average amount of diamonds obtained.

Once you find a block or vein of diamond ore, you'll need to mine it to get the diamond gem(s) it contains. Before you do this, though, make sure the area is safe: after all, you don't want to lose any diamonds!

First, if you've located the diamond ore by caving, light up or block off any nearby dark areas so you won't get blown up or shot while attempting to mine. Next, dig away all blocks directly adjacent to the vein, both to expose the whole vein and to make sure the diamonds won't drop into lava and burn. A very effective method of preventing anything from dropping into lava is holding the Shift (crouch) key and W (forward) key, while mining your resource. This will both prevent you and your precious diamonds from falling into possible lava below. If you encounter any lava, get rid of it before you mine the blocks.

Now that it's safe to mine, use an iron or diamond pickaxe to break the blocks. The blocks will drop one gem each, unless your pickaxe is enchanted with the Fortune enchantment (Fortune III, the highest level, will make ore drop as many as four diamonds, you will get more diamonds using the fortune enchantment on harder difficulties, and on average doubles the yield of a diamond vein). Remember to dig around diamond veins, as diamonds can form diagonally in the same vein.

If you have not yet acquired a Fortune pickaxe but are in possession of a Silk Touch pickaxe, then it might be worth it to mine the block using the Silk Touch pickaxe to obtain the diamond ore. The diamond ore can then be stored until you have obtained a Fortune pickaxe and can mine the diamond ore with a higher yield.

Now that you have diamonds, it's best to proceed directly to a safe place to stash them in a chest; this could be your home base or a secure mining outpost. Be careful to make the chest secure from attacks by creepers, or your precious new-found wealth could go up in smoke.
