Seed: -3111369940559244400 This Java seed has a lot going for it. First, there is an open pit diamond mine north of coordinates X:-1898 Y:-59 Z:968. And then, there’s also a vein of four emerald ores in the nearby mountains, as well as a stronghold and ancient city right above the mine. y-coordinate is how many vertical blocks you are from the bottom of the map.
In simplest terms, this means that diamonds are only found in the bottom 15 block layer of the world. You can see your current y-coordinate by pressing F3 on PC or by opening a map item in-game.
How to find diamonds in Minecraft?
Unlike Iron, Gold or Netherite, you don’t have to smelt to get diamonds. Diamond ore blocks drop diamonds directly, and you can quickly use them to craft higher quality items.
The first and most common way to find diamond ore in Minecraft is to mine it. Since the game’s release, diamonds have spawned everywhere below the 16th layer. After years of exploration and testing, most players agree that you can find rich deposits of diamonds and veins between levels five and 12.
Emeralds, iron start spawning at Y256 provided there are land masses that they were generated at that height. Iron is most abundant at Y232 which begins to decline until Y80. After that Iron spawns underground in Minecraft 1.18. Y80 to Y-64 is where iron will be generated but not as abundant as at the surface. Here you will find most iron ore in Y16 and Y14. This is the new Iron Ore distribution in Minecraft 1.18.
Is it possible to find 12 diamonds?
Up to ten individual diamond ores can be produced from veins of diamond ore that are close to each other. On the other hand, due to the ability of ore veins to collide with each other, players will have an extremely slim chance of mining a diamond vein that contains up to 12 diamonds.
It is important to keep in mind that your Ally can only pick up goods that have already been dropped; in other words, it can only pick up items when they’re a small icon hovering above the ground. This indicates that if you give your Allay a diamond, he will not be able to locate other diamonds that you have not previously mined.
