Let's all celebrate the release of Minecraft 1.18 with a simple diamond spawn seed, giving us easy access to a nice headstart as we explore the new world generation mechanics. This seed doesn't provide a huge amount of diamonds, but you spawn almost directly above a huge vein of Diamond Ore with 12 blocks!

    • Diamond Vein: 59 -22 -48
    • Village: -312 136
    • Witch Hut: -216 296

Caves = Exposed Diamonds

Seed: -1245476201

The biggest downside to 1.18 world generation is that diamonds are now much less likely to be found exposed. However, this seed overrides that change by including massive amounts of huge open caves near the spawn with exorbitant amounts of exposed diamonds. You also spawn near plenty of buried treasure with potential to give you even more diamonds! This map is perfect for people who want to get explore the new caves and also have access to diamonds early in the game.

    • Buried Treasure #1: -232 -232

You may have to risk your neck fighting off the dragon in this unless you avoid it completely. Regardless of what you do, you will find an End City not too far away that with over 70 Diamonds and plenty of Diamond Armor! The image above shows just how massive this city is and you'll find that if you explore the whole area, it's definitely worth the effort. This is enough diamonds and gear for a full team, so bring your friends.

In this map you'll find a massive, astronomically high 17-ore diamond vein! If you use a Fortune III pickaxe on this vein, it's possible to get more than 35 diamonds.

We're going to have to steer you towards a Reddit post to see the power of this seed. SeedShipper managed to find a seed with a large cave system that landed them over 75 Diamonds in barely over a minute! While we don't have all the coordinates of these diamond veins, you can watch the video in that Reddit post and follow along with your Fortune III pickaxe. We've never seen more diamond veins so easily accessible!

General Kenobi's Stash of 31 Diamonds

Diamond Seed for Bedrock in 1.17 July 2021

In this seed, you start near a village and a ravine with plenty of exposed diamonds. It's up to you on whether you'd like to save these for later or take them early. Regardless of your decision, this is a great seed to collect diamonds for a full set of tools and gear. Perhaps the most entertaining part about this seed is the tag for it, which is why we called it Kenobi's Stash! Does the ravine with all the Diamonds look like the Death Star being built?

    • Ravine w/ Diamonds: 100 -275
    • Village: 200 -310
    • Stronghold: 132 900

This is a great Bedrock map with a Diamond Vein near spawn that contains 15 ores! If mined with a Fortune III Pickaxe, you can get over 30 Diamonds from a vein this big easily. For those of you that are unaware, that's more than a full set of Diamond Gear, including the sword. What's more: There are two Strongholds that are both relatively short hikes away from the spawn area!

  • Key Locations
    • Stronghold #1: -1228 40 -796
    • Stronghold #2: -348 40 1060

This was another record-setting find for players that are looking for access to diamond veins. There are 75 Diamond Ore blocks available, all of them available from level 12 and within a few hundred blocks of the spawn. Not only are you spawned next to the smiley ravine (pictured above) with the first two diamonds, but Reddit user MillHall78 even wrote down the list of all the locations of the diamond veins! This is one heck-of-a-find and will be a tough record to beat.

  1. Hey guys, not far from the village, at 2028, 10 -227 there is a 9-vein of diamonds! with all these diamonds, i have 29 in total!

  2. Wow I played for 45mins and I got 2 sets of diamond armor so I’m going to love this

  3. niceone rlly helped

  4. In the “smile for diamonds seed” you get a stack (64) and 8 diamonds and there are extra exposed diamonds. Plus the number of diamonds they say are there isnt even the actually number of diamonds! there usually 2 or 3 more which is really good. Also, I suggest you make a diamond pickaxe first because it will be easier to get diamonds fast

  5. More emerald ore at 3127, 21, 1655

  6. Emerald ore at 3140, 18, 1673.

  7. mineshaft at 3120, 18, 1657.

  8. Oh, I just found a chest with some OP gold items at 2225, 65, 1331.

  9. And last, a MASSIVE abandoned village at 2311, 70, 1447.

  10. and 8 diamonds at 1408, 12, 842.

  11. village, desert temple and outpost at 1824, 69, 488.

  12. Oh, and a treasure chest at 1928, 59, -248.

  13. And a buried desert temple at 1674, 74, -775, and some underwater ruins abovewater at 1739, 71, -585. (These are all in the 18 diamonds at spawn seed)

  14. On 18 Diamonds At Spawn there is an abandoned desert village at 1893, 72, -410.

  15. On smile for diamonds there is 6 diamonds at 88 11 -55 😀

    1. oh also 5 at 92 11 -103

  16. It was really help full for my speedrun though I still did not complete the run
    I would recommend the “smile for diamonds”in bedrock

    1. Only one thing when I went to do my speed run it took at least 45 mins to search the diamonds so just make sure you know your coordinates well it will help

  17. “smile for diamonds”
    there is also a nether ruin by the ocean
    coordinates about 205 63 99

  18. I have this survival world, and it has several rivines, mineshaft with diamonds in rivine, and a strong hold rivine at a abandoned village, it is off the map but I like exploring the overew
    orlds caves and everythin.

  19. I love trying new recipies

  20. Awesome! though, are there any PE seeds.
    I though it said so
    But it’s fine
    These are cool seeds

    1. Sorry if I had bad spelling, my phone is being weird, but anyway this map has lots of opportunity on getting iron, gold, etc.

    2. All the Bedrock seeds can be used on PE.

  21. Cool dood

  22. The Minecraft world with the seed 10292992 is cursed me and my friends kept going on it and it keeps kicking us

    1. It’s clearly haunted, I don’t recommend trying it anymore.

      1. haunted? i would never try that seed

  23. Evident you are playing Minecraft now?

    1. I’ve always dabbled with it.

  24. I found even more diamond in MelsTree’s “12 diamond seed”
    here’s the coordinate
    diamond spot 1 : 153 12 31
    diamond spot 2 : 134 14 62
    diamond spot 3 : 160 13 103
