What is the maximum amount of diamond in one Minecraft game?

I’ve been wondering – what is the max amount of diamonds I could potentially find in a single Minecraft world?


There is no fixed amount of Diamond per world, but let’s do some math…

This is a calculation for the maximum possible amount. This will likely never happen due to the map size and vein & fortune yield chances, but you asked for the maximum, not for the average.

  • a world can be 60 x 60 million blocks, that’s 468,750 x 468,750 chunks = 219,726,562,500 chunks
  • Diamond Ore can appear once per chunk in veins of 1-10 ores
  • in the unlikely event of all veins yielding 10 ores that would be 2,197,265,625,000 ores
  • mining them all with Fortune 3 could potentially drop 4 diamonds per ore
  • 2,197,265,625,000 ores x 4 = 8,789,062,500,000 diamonds… happy mining.
  • …and then you can still find more diamonds in treasure chests
