Diamond Farm in Minecraft – A Complete Guide

Do you want lots of diamonds? You are at the right place as we have a complete guide on how to make Diamond Farm in Minecraft.

The problem of finding diamonds in large quantities is particularly challenging. The good news is that you can find diamonds a lot faster if you know a few tricks. During the creation of the world, it is important to know where and how diamond ores are generated. 

There are only seventeen layers of the overworld where diamond ore can be found, in small chunks of two to eight ores. However, finding only one diamond ore isn’t uncommon. In general, diamond ores are formed when a cave, dungeon, or other landmark is created over them. If you keep this in mind, creating efficient mineshafts is easy, though you may not find diamonds right away, which is to be expected for such a rare block.

The first thing you need to do is place four of your stone blocks in a circle with a hole in the middle. In order to create a double-sized chest, you will want to extend one of those blocks. Proceed to the next step by destroying the block that is built upon. 

After this, place three hoppers over your construction and two sets of diamond ore on the opposite side of your chest. Next, you will position two slime pistons around the diamond ore that is not only floating, but also within one block of it.

In the next step, you will place two pistons on either side of your chest and on the inside portion as well. On either side of your growing contraption, you will place two sets of two blocks into which Redstone dust will be placed. After that, you’ll want to place levers in your blocks where Redstone dust appears. To extend the range of the Redstone dust’s activation, place Redstone torches inside the contraption.

Last but not least, you will place two pistons slightly above your diamond ore on either side of your contraption. Activating them requires placing a Redstone dust trail behind them to trigger them, which then creates enough lag so that the diamond can be duplicated.  Once that’s done, you can collect the item you desire.
