Diamonds are a gem used in many useful crafting recipes.

Obtaining

Mining

One diamond is dropped by diamond ore if mined with an iron pickaxe or above. If the player does not use an iron pickaxe, then diamond ore is unbreakable.

Natural Generation

Diamonds can be found in 21.8% of loot chests in stacks of 1-3.

Enderman

There is a really small chance that a diamond is dropped by an enderman. The exact probability of this is unknown. While this makes the diamond technically renewable, it hardly affects the amount of diamonds which any player has.

Crafting

Nine diamonds can be crafted back from a diamond block.

Trivia

  • Diamond armor, in real life, would be useless, since the form of particles giving it its crystal texture means it can be cut easily at an angle where it is flat. Since it is a game about blocks any 90' hit would slice your diamond armor in half. Lucky for us this doesn't happen!
  • Diamond is the only gem that can be obtained in every dimension, since the enderman has a rare chance of dropping one, and the enderman spawns in the Overworld, the End, and the Nether.
