A good spot for mining diamonds on minecraft
The best way to find diamonds is to make a stairway down to the eleventh level. Press F3 on a PC to check, it will look like this...
y: 11.000 (feet pos, 12.620 eyes pos)
... or something similar.
The x and z values are your position on the map. y is your height.
Lava pools form mainly at level 11 so don't go below and you'll avoid most of the danger. Remember to bring a water bucket with you!
From the bottom of your staircase simply mine a tunnel 2 high and 1 wide, then come back and make another 2 blocks over. Over time this is the most reliable method to get the most diamonds.
