I can never find gold or diamond and me and my friends are dying to know where you find it. And also, does the diamond pickaxe last forever?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

No, the diamond pickaxe lasts for 1562 uses, but it is possible for it to last up to 4 times as long as that with the Unbreaking III enchantment. –  DanielGibbs Sep 3 '12 at 19:51
The best level to mine for diamonds at is level 11 (Y-coordinate 11) –  Timtech Jul 26 '13 at 23:36
