Found 24 in one chunk at the bottom of a level. Go ahead and argue your semantics about how it's not one vein, but it was in one spot. All connected = one vein in my book.
Have fun yelling at each other about how it's impossible or whatever shenanigans you feel like going on about. I'll be mining away over here.
Technically, the max vein size is 8, but if 4 veins of 8 interconnect at a border between 4 chunks, then theoretically a vein of 32 is possible. Finding a diamond vein of 9 or more is extremely rare on it's own, I've never seen it happen and I've been playing since Alpha 1.1.2.
