Hello, in this instructable, I will be showing you how to get diamonds in survival mode of Minecraft.
You will need:
An Iron or Diamond pic ax
A mine going down to bedrock
Step 1: Tunneling
When you make a mine, the best way I know to efficiently get down is to make a staircase mine. How to make one? all you need to do is mine three down in front of you when in the ground.
Step 2: Layers
Once you get to bedrock, dig out a little area to find the highest bedrock block. Then, when you have found it, go five meters(blocks) higher and make a straight tunnel.
Step 3: Diamonds
Keep tunneling until you find some. I hope you found this useful. Please vote, and comment.
