Diamonds are the gems that are dropped when diamond ore is mined. Diamond is considered one of the most valuable items in the game due to their scarcity and use as a crafting material. Diamond can usually be found around 1 to 16 blocks above bedrock. Diamond tools and armor can be made from it, and are the most durable and efficient in the game. Diamonds can also be used to make jukeboxes, enchantment tables and solid diamond blocks. Diamond pickaxes are the only pickaxes that can be used to mine obsidian.
