Introduction: How to Get Diamonds in Survival Minecraft

About: I like food, music, video games, and art. I enjoy learning languages, playing games, making music, drawing, and making things in general. Don't mind my weird instructables.

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

Please enjoy.

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.

    Question 7 weeks ago

    Is that Y level 12 (highest bedrock would be 7) or 5 (highest bedrock would be 0)?

    Or a sword if you play Bedrock where it hasn't been updated to 1.16.5

    the easiest way to dig down ward is to make a bunch of ladders and go straight down. it makes going back up and down really fast and easy.

    Fastest safe way of mining downwards: Stand on between two blocks on the surface. Then, below you, destroy the left and the right, the left and the right, the left and the right... If you stand in the middle enough, you won't fall down if spotting lava below a block you destroy. Make sure to make yourself a full stack of ladders so you can get to the surface again right after mining.
