1) Craft pick.

2) Find stone.

3) Dig down.

4) Repeat steps 2, 3, and 4.
Stop inspecting my post so closely.

Sorry, bit of a noob to Minecraft, what do you mean by level 10.6? Down 10^6/1'000'000 blocks? Or does each seeded map have generic layers you can dig through? Anyway cheers.

He means dig quite deep down.

Diamond is found from layer 2-17 and is quite rare. Dig 50 odd levels down below you and from there downwards you *may* start to find it.

Okay maybe this is kinda newbish but i got 24 diamonds in 1 day with this

Dig all the way down to the bedrock (The rock you cannot break)
Keep placing ladders on your way down and press RS so you don't fall down (You might fall into some lava)
So keep placing these ladders also a few torches can help you finding Gold, Coal, Iron, etc. on your way down.

Once you hit the bedrock do this; Place one rock under you so you are at layer 1 and not just standing at the bedrock now make a 7x3 tunnel and start making straight tunnels and place torches in your tunnels if you don't see anything..

Now just keep doin' this also don't keep using your diamond pickaxe all the time once you get one use stone or iron instead, i'm using my diamond pickaxes once i got to 20 diamonds just recommended ;)

I hope this helps, this REALLY HELPED ME ;)

step 1. find a village with a smith
step 2. loot the chest(and hope there is diamond in it)
step 3. steal all the bloks you need and then destroy the village and it's residents.
repeat.
or
step 1. be a lucky bastard(like me)
step 2. accidentaly find a cave/dungeon/underground ravine/etc. while making a house/a basement for your house.
step 3. find out that there is diamond in the cave/dungeon/underground ravine/etc.

however i don't realy care for diamond i just put it in a chest anyway, i only use an iron pick to mine gold and diamond and a diamond pick to mine obsidian and for the rest i just use stone and wood

i hope my trick is the same as my name(da bestest)
me is da tuffest. me is da bestest.
WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH!!!

I find most diamonds on level 1(bedrock/stone) - 4. I've tried doing the counting up 10 blocks etc but hardly got any diamonds, did it from level 1-4 and got over 30 in no time (branch mining).
Want something recording? Message me on here and I'll get back to you. All editing must be done by you.

Start a quarry 20x20 that goes down to bedrock, then put down 12 blocks and stand on top of them so you are on the 12th layer and start digging into a wall

WOW, most of these posts.... just horrible repetiveness.
Find a tunnel system that goes pretty deep down. When or IF you start to see lava keep searching any joining tunnels. As well as dig out the gravel and dirt. Dont bother with the dirt and gravel unless your close to bedrock or youll just find coal ,or water ,or grass ,maybe iron. Nine times out of ten if a cave system hits lava and there are conjopining tunnels you will find diamond.


Digging straight down = bad idea
spiral stair case = to much work and much less ore (robertlindsay, has a good idea though for the spiral) (see to much work)
steal from village = Realy??
quarry 20 x 20 = GET REAL
dig to level 10.6 = This is not the pc, we dopnt have a depth meter crap or console commands

Just go and mine till you find bedrock, stay 2 blocks above the bedrock search for lava by making a 2 by 2 / 3 by 2 or 3 by 3 tunnel and when you might stumble upon a lava lake or pool, search around there becouse thats the place where you will most likely find the most diamonds.

I don't think they have villages in Minecraft:Xbox 360 Edition. But I know there is a village on the tutorial.

Dig down to 10-15 levels above bedrock and begin strip mining.

i normally go searching for tunnels first, as theres often many diamonds on show,

but i always have a branch mine on every map, laborious and boring but guaranteed to find those elusive diamonds

You will always find more diamonds under an ocean than anywhere else just use your map to find level 10 and dig up three slots so your mining 10 11 and 12 at the same time go in a line till you find some just stay on lvl 10 you will find plenty

Just follow the video but do it near the sea  i started to do like this and would get one stack of diamond for every double chest full of cobble
