How do I find diamonds?

The durability of iron tools is really starting to annoy me, but in all my hours of playing I’ve only stumbled across one deposit of diamond ore that provided around 7 Diamonds.

What’s the best way to locate more in Survival mode? Where is it most commonly found?

Diamond ore


When in doubt, Find a Cave.

If you don’t see anything on the surface, Dig Deeper.

Really, that’s all there is to it. In general, you won’t find Diamond much past 10 levels or so above Bedrock.

The graph below (taken from TR’s interactive MC Block Distribution Chart) shows the density of Diamond in one generated world. 0 on the X axis represents bedrock. 255 is the top of the sky.
