Diamond is a standard resource in vanilla Minecraft. It is found underground on layers 1-16 as well as in chests in dungeons or abandoned mineshafts. A rare and precious item, diamonds are used for many middle-to endgame items.

Increasing yield[edit]

It is possible to either macerate, pulverize , or use the Rock Crusher to get two diamonds from one Diamond Ore. Grinding it in an Industrial Grinder will yield one diamond and one and a half Diamond Dust per ore, for a total of 2.125 diamonds per ore if the dust is converted to diamonds with an Implosion Compressor. Grinding the ore in a Grinder yields an average of 2.25 diamonds per ore with no further processing needed. Using a pick (or Mining Drill) with the Vanilla enchant Fortune III yields an average of 2.2 diamonds per ore. For diamond yield, using a Rock Cutter and putting the ore in a Grinder therefore has a slight edge, with Fortune III being a close second; for obtaining dust, the Industrial Grinder has a significant advantage.

Creating[edit]

  • While crushing Gravel using the Rock Crusher, there is a chance of <1% to obtain a diamond.
  • Using a Tome of Alkahest one can convert 4 Lapis Lazuli Blocks into 2 Diamonds.
  • Diamonds can be created through alchemy with the Minium Stone and 4 Gold Ingots. Recursively, you can use 32 Iron Ingots, 128 Obsidian, or 256 Wood. A few other methods also yield iron (256 Sand/Cobblestone/Dirt, 1 Ender pearl for 4 iron).

Industrial Diamond[edit]

A Diamond can be created out of 64 Coal, 8 Flint, and 1 Obsidian using a few IndustrialCraft2 machines. Formerly this method was used to create a so-called "Industrial Diamond". Industrial Diamonds are now deprecated and replaced with regular diamonds.

First, Macerate the coal or coal ore into Coal Dust.

Put 8 Coal Dust in a crafting table, surrounding flint to create a Coal Ball.

Next, surround a block of Obsidian, Brick or Iron with the Compressed Coal Balls to create 1 Coal Chunk.
