Finding Diamond hint for Minecraft

 
 
 

Finding Diamond

If you're like me, you've had trouble finding diamond ore. Well, I've figured out a trick to it. All you have to do is dig down until you hit the bedrock. Go up three blocks, and start digging a tunnel in any direction that's one block wide, and three blocks high. Dig until you just can't dig anymore. Move over two blocks, and start digging your way back. You're almost guaranteed to hit Diamond Ore soon enough.

i have an observation. every tie i find diamond, it seems to be near redstone and lava, with dirt nearby, but i never find much iron or coal nearby, so i guess just do some intense searching around any areas with these characteristics. maybe itll work, maybe not, but its just something ive noticed, and ive found 12 diamond in the past two days, purely by luck, but still noticed this. good luck all!

Hi i found a good trick for finding diamond. GO down until you have reached bedrock, then mine a bunch:P until you have found dirt or red stone. Almost every time i go mining for diamond i find red stone, then i find dirt. After i dig all the dirt i mine some of the stone and almost all the time i find diamond. I hope this works for you, and if it didn't, then I'm sorry.

They say diamond occurs from layer 3-4 (end of bedrock) to layer 20. therefore i found it more often from layer 8 to 16, being most common at layer 12.
To improve your rentability, well dont lose time finding any natural cave in which you will lose time on useless layers: 60-35.
Directly dig down from your ground layer to layer 15-16.
Then start digging a 3x3 room, and increase it's volume everytime,3x3,4x4,5x5 etc etc etc. Only mining between layer 16 and layer 8 shall reduce time you lose mining in all layers between in.
Dont forget there's only around 3-4 diamond ores by chunk ( 15x15 block square from top layer to lowest layer) Diamonds generally occurs to be implanted by 3 ores, so if you find up to 3 of them, you can guess that there are two veins that spawned stuck together.
I play minecraft since more than one year, and i know how diamond is the hell to find, and how annoying is to lose materials crafting a thousand of pickaxes. It's still hard to find some, but since i play like that, i improved my diamond stock. I hope this will work for you guys, good luck and greetings from france!
