Step one: Mine stone with a wooden pickaxe. Simple!
Step two: Assuming your crafting table is near, craft two stone pickaxes. You'll want two because they wear out.
Step three: Find and mine iron.
Step four: Smelt the iron in a furnace, if your version has a furnace. Note that furnaces require a wood product (I.e. Wood, fences, doors, planks, etc) or coal as fuel. Better get choppin'!
Step five: Craft your iron pickaxe and mine away! Enjoy!
Hope this helps!

Use your crafting table to make 2 stone pickaxes then mine down until you find some iron collect the iron then smelt it in a furnace then use the iron to make an iron pickaxe then you can use that to mine your diamond hope this helped Smile

Step one: get nine diamonds
Step two: make a diamond block
Step three: place it
Step four: exit out of game
Step five: go to recent games and delete minecraft from it.
Step six: go back in and select your game
When you get in you should see another In your inventory and you should see it on the ground. Do that over and over and you will have unlimited diamonds

Never use gold pickaxe to mine stuff it sucks because if you mine dimonds with it you will get nothing so to get dimonds you need to have a iron
Pickaxe or a dimond ( if you already found dimonds)

There is a seed that lets you find diamond and gold ore. The seed is 122080722. You make a mark where you spawned, make a crafting table, 2 chests (large chest), and a wooden pickaxe. Now dig straight down with the wooden pickaxe. When you get 15-20 blocks of cobblestone go back up, make a stone pickaxe, furnace, and a stonecutter. Make a house around the mining spot, get iron ore, make iron ingots, and make an iron pickaxe. Now dig straight down on the mark you made with the stone pickaxe. When you find diamond/gold, use your iron pickaxe, and get all of the diamond/gold. Go back up and smelt the diamond/gold. There you have it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You have to use the wood pick to mine stone, and then use a stone pick (made by three cobblestone and two sticks in a crafting table)to mine iron smelt the iron and use three pieces and a two sticks in a crafting table and then use that to mine the diamonds it may seem complicated but it's really not

Diamonds can only be mined by iron or diamond pickaxe.
Iron can be found in caves. You mine it and smelt it in a furnace.The craft it in a pickaxe.

It is not possible in Minecraft to gain diamond ore with a wooden pickaxe. The only wait to obtain Diamond Ore via Minecraft is to use an Iron or Diamond pickaxe.
