One of the reasons that players in Minecraft want to get a hold of diamonds is not just because they are rare, but because they have practical uses in the game itself.

Here’s everything you need to know about finding diamonds in Minecraft.

So, before you go looking for diamonds in Minecraft, it’s worth knowing exactly what tools you will need to mine them.

Make sure that you’ve got an Iron or Diamond Pickaxe in your inventory, as a Wood, Stone or Gold pickaxe will not work and you’ll just mine through Diamond Ore and not actually be able to collect any.

How Can I Get Diamonds in Minecraft?

You can find Diamond Ore between layers 5 and 16, but the best place to check is Layer 12. You can check which layer you are on in a map by looking at the Y value (F3 on PC).

Another way to go hunting for diamonds is by exploring cave systems in the map you are using. Caves in Minecraft can be huge, so as long as you have a means of lighting the area (such as a torch) you can easily find swaths of Diamond Ore. Just be on the lookout for lava!

But, what is the best way to make your way down below the surface of a map? Here are a couple of suggestions.

The Staircase Method

As a rule, you should never mine straight down in Minecraft, as you won’t be able to make your way back up to the surface. If you’re playing in Survival Mode? You won’t be surviving that long.

A way around this is the ‘Staircase Method,’ where you can dig down on a 45-degree angle leaving behind you a staircase that can easily be used to return to the surface by jumping.

The Branch Mining Method

Another great way to mine is by using the branch mining method. Doing this means that you can cover a lot of surface area by creating a 2x2 tunnel and creating individual ‘branches’ out from every third block.
