Diamonds mining is the most challenging and time-consuming task in Minecraft. Unlike other items, diamond doesnt lie in an easy location- you have to go deeper into mountains and caves where the boiling lava flows everywhere. And you have to mine for hours without any guarantee of getting them. And in Minecraft 1.17, the diamond has become a more rare item. However, if you know the best Y coordinate and some tips, you can find diamonds quickly in Minecraft.
So today, we will analyze 10 photos of diamond mining locations in Minecraft with the Y-axis point to know the best location to get them.
Best way to find diamonds in Minecraft
Have a look at all pictures:FIG (I)
In fig (I), you can see the diamonds near the lava lake and I find them in Y 10 without removing any other blocks.
It means, while you reach near the lava lakes, look at all sides carefully. If you are lucky, you can get it without effort.FIG (II)
In fig(II), the diamonds are in Y=6. But, to find them I removed five layers of cobblestones on all sides of the lava lake, and again I removed four down layers. Finally, I got 5 diamond blocks Minecraft.FIG (III)
In fig(III), there are eight blocks of diamonds in the Y-axis 11. To find them, I mined seven layers of other blocks on all sides of the lava pond.
If you see dirt or gravel below Y16 near lava, then remove them all carefully. In fig(IV), I found diamonds after I remove all dirt blocks. But if you dont get anything after removing, then mine some layers behind the dirt and gravel.FIG (V)
In fig (V), you can see the diamonds lies in the Y 10 coordinate just near the lava lake in Minecraft.FIG (VI)
In fig (VI), the diamonds blocks are located just under the Lava lake in Y 9 in Minecraft. In most cases, you can find them under the boiling lava. Therefore, firstly clear all the lava by putting gravel blocks on it. Then start mining under it. But beware, the lava is everywhere, so do mining by listing its sound. (Note: dont throw water on lava or cover the lave with cobblestones or other. Only use the gravel blocks to clear deep lava lakes in Minecraft)FIG (VII)
There are 7 diamonds in fig (VII) that I get on the Y 13 axis. And I am standing in the 5th block after the lava lake.FIG (VIII)
Again, I found diamonds near the lava fall in Y 12 in Minecraft. But they were behind the dirt blocks. So, again I am repeating, remove all dirt or gravel that you see below the Y 16.FIG (IX)
Here at fig (IX), I started mining from the Y 14 and removed 8 blocks from all sides of lave lake. But I dont find anything. So, again I went 4 levels deeper on all sides and found 8 diamonds.FIG (X)
In fig(X), I got a diamond in the Y 11 coordinate near the lava lake without much struggle.

To mine more diamonds in Minecraft, firstly find a big cave and go deeper until you reach Y level 15. From that point, the diamonds will start to appear.
But after analyzing the pictures in this article and from my personal experience, the best Y coordinate to find more diamonds is between 12 to 8.
