Is there a specific y level for diamonds so that they occur the most? I am having trouble because some people will say Y level 10 or Y level 14 and so on. I just want to know if there is a designated Y level for diamonds or something.

Below level about 15 (12 if you want to be exact) diamonds become more common, however below level 4 they start to get less common. Since the higher the safer in mining, it is recommended to mine about 10 - 12, but if you really want you can go to 6 - 9.


diamonds naturally spawn at level 12. Therefore if you mine at a lower level you will run into more diamonds than if you mine on level 12.

  • do we have any proof that it is Y level 12?
