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. That's a full set of Diamond Gear, including some tools! Start your game off right by getting everything you need from a single Diamond Vein.

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!

Savannah Villages are already our favorite type of Village because of how pleasant they look, and this seed only helps fortify that fact. You spawn right next to a village with a Blacksmith, and inside his chest you'll find 11 diamonds! This is a quick start to great armor, and is enough to don Diamond Leggings and Boots. Once you're done setting up camp, you have plenty of ocean to explore (and Shipwrecks). As a cherry on top, you have access to all biomes within 2k blocks!

    • Savanna Village: 152 80 168
    • Shipwreck #1: -88 40 1-184

Mineshaft, Villages, and a Temple at Spawn

In this seed you do have your work cut out for you. You spawn near several biomes, a couple desert villages, and a Desert Temple with diamonds. You won't find a lot of diamonds there, but the real treasure is underneath the temple and your spawn point. There are two easy entrances to the mineshaft below, which has plenty of opportunity for diamonds to mine. The first entrance is the tree that you spawn near, just dig straight down and you will land in the Mineshaft. The second entrance is the TNT in the Desert Temple. Once you have collected the diamonds, just go ahead and step on the plate to explode the TNT. It opens the Mineshaft! Get mining!

  • Key Locations
    • Desert Temple: 24 80 88
    • Village #1: 68 80 244
    • Village #2: 204 80 292

Blacksmith, Blocks, and Gear in Mansion!

If you ever wanted a quick seed for Diamonds, then truly this one is it. Straight away you can loot Diamonds from the blacksmith to get yourself a Diamond Pickaxe. Then after you are suited in some semi-decent armor, head forth and conquer the mansion and defeat the pillagers to claim Diamon Chestplate and blocks!

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

Smile for Diamonds

A smiley ravine!

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.

This map spawns you directly next to a ravine that has 21 exposed diamonds at the bottom! That's the quick start you're looking to find, and will give you a nice boost to your early game. Simply find some iron, and you'll be ready to enter the Nether within 10 - 15 minutes of spawning. After you get all your gear ready, you can hit the stronghold that is about 1,000 blocks away and defeat the Ender Dragon in record time!

You have to dig for these diamonds, but you don't have to travel far from spawn! There is a Mineshaft close to spawn and several villages nearby for you to set up camp. If you manage to snag a Fortune III pickaxe and hit that 15 Diamond Ore vein, you will be sitting pretty!

This seed isn't too functional as far as survival goes, but it has a ton of diamonds available immediately. Within 10 minutes you will have enough diamonds for a chestplate, leggings and a diamond pickaxe! Once you have those, you are ready to explore the Overworld and the Nether.

    • 8 Diamonds Under Spawn: 2312, 13, 5
    • 8 More Diamonds: 2347, 12, 5

  1. 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

  2. More emerald ore at 3127, 21, 1655

  3. Emerald ore at 3140, 18, 1673.

  4. mineshaft at 3120, 18, 1657.

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

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

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

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

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

  10. 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)

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

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

    1. oh also 5 at 92 11 -103

  13. 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

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

  15. 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.

  16. I love trying new recipies

  17. 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.

  18. Cool dood

  19. 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

  20. Evident you are playing Minecraft now?

    1. I’ve always dabbled with it.

  21. 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
