Can someone tell me a very easy way to find diamonds because it takes me 10 min to just find like 10 diamonds mining on y11. I have also tried y6 and I didn’t find diamonds. I only found diamonds because I got lucky going in one of the caves I found.

    Does this answer your question? What's the most efficient Minecraft mining strategy? or Mining for Diamonds in Minecraft

  • 10 diamonds within 10 minutes is a lot, provided you are not using looting and efficiency pickaxes. Many players have experienced the pain of finding no diamonds in an entire hour.

I've found that the fastest way is to create an efficiency IV pickaxe or more with fortune III, and then get into a 1x1 hole with a water bucket at y-11 or y-12. You can insta-mine stone, allowing you to mine as fast as you can move.
