Ore generation will change when Part Two of the Minecraft Caves & Cliffs update releases. For now, diamonds generate most frequently between Y levels 5 to 12 in any given Minecraft world. Because of this, players should always look at their coordinates while on a diamond hunt.

Gamers should make their way to a Y level at which diamonds generate. Most players choose to search for diamonds on Y level 10 or 11. Once there, players can mine in any direction, and eventually they will find some diamond ores.

2) Start from the bottom


Another similar method of diamond hunting in Minecraft Pocket Edition is to dig all the way down to bedrock. Once at bedrock level, players can go at least 5 blocks from there and begin strip mining.

Every Minecraft player should know that digging straight down can be incredibly risky. There is always a chance of mining directly into a lava pool and burning to death or dropping into a deep cave or ravine and hitting the ground too hard.

3) Cave exploration

Players can always start their diamond hunt by entering exposed caves in their Minecraft world. Especially when the newest addition to the Minecraft Caves & Cliffs update is released, finding diamonds might be easier than ever thanks to the insane cave generation that will be introduced.

Some caves will go so deep down underground that they lead players right to where diamonds can generate. In fact, caves sometimes tend to have exposed diamond ores for players to find.

When the Caves & Cliffs part two is released, diamond ores will likely be exposed in caves far more often. Caves will be deeper and wider than ever before, causing exposed diamonds to increase significantly.

4) Lava pools

One way to find diamond ores in Minecraft Pocket Edition is to first look for lava pools instead. Most Minecraft worlds will generate with many lava pools near bedrock level and can be heard before being seen thanks to their sound effects.

Lava pools are always great places to look for diamonds. Because of where lava pools generate in Minecraft worlds, it is highly likely that diamonds will be generated around the area as well. Many lava pools even have exposed diamonds near them.

Of course, players should always be careful mining diamonds around lava pools. The diamonds could easily drop directly into the lava after being mined, causing it to be burned and lost forever.

  • Mineshafts
  • Buried treasure chests
  • Desert temples
  • Jungle temples
  • Shipwrecks
  • Strongholds
  • Villages
  • Bastion remnants
  • Nether fortress

If a player is able to locate any of the above structures, there is always a chance that diamonds will be within the loot chests.
