In Minecraft, diamonds are one of the sought items. It is because of their use in crafting diamond and netherite tools, armor and weapons. Along with lapis lazuli, emeralds, and ancient debris, diamonds are one of the rarest ores. Now, what is the best coordinate for mining diamonds?
According to Minecraft Gamepedia, the best levels to find diamonds are in level 11 to 12. When you descend to the deepest part of the underground to find the diamonds, you will need an iron, diamond, or netherite pickaxe so that you are able to mine diamonds, food and some torches to prevent mobs from spawning. Then, you will also need a water bucket to convert lava into obsidian and to remove the burning status from falling into lava, a crafting table to make mineral blocks and furnaces, a sword and a shovel to be able to remove dirt and gravel and armor to be able to reduce lava and monster damage are recommended.
Diamonds can be obtained from diamond ore. A rare find can be found in about ~0.0846% (~1 in 1200) of blocks in levels 5 – 16. You are able to find diamonds anywhere beneath layer 16. However, it is most common in layers 5-12. It is important for you to know that diamond ore only can be found underground, between the “y-coordinates” of 1 to 15. It means that diamonds ore can be found in the bottom block layer of the world. If you want to see your current y-coordinate, you are able to do that by pressing F3 on PC. Or, you can do that by opening an in-game map item.
You can start digging underground and make sure that you have to be careful not to dig straight down because you are able to easily die from a large fall or from landing in lava. It is better for you to dig in a staircase method down. So, you are able to easily walk back up after you are done mining.
If you want to find diamonds while you are mining, you have two main choices including mining tunnels and exploring caves. It is recommended for you to explore all deep underground caves that you encounter while mining because they will often have diamonds in them. If you have run out of caves to explore, or if you dug down and have not found a cave yet, you need to mine tunnels at a y-coordinate of 11 or 12.
Well, mining is the best way that you are able do to find diamonds. However, you are also able to find diamonds as a reward in some chests including Nether Fortress, Villages, Woodland Mansions, Jungle and Desert Temples, Strongholds and Abandoned Mineshafts, and End Cities.
Now, you have known what coordinate that you can go to find diamonds. So, you are able to open Minecraft now, login and then find the diamonds there.
