[edit] Usage

Blocks of diamond can be used to store diamonds in a compact fashion.

[edit] Beacons

Blocks of diamond can be used to "power" a beacon. The top layer must be at least 3×3 optional lower layers can be adding as 5×5, 7×7, and 9×9 from top to bottom. The layers do not have to be entirely diamond blocks, as they may also contain blocks of iron, blocks of gold, and blocks of emerald.

[edit] Trivia

  • One block of diamond and one wooden log is exactly enough to create a 80% set of diamond tools with one or no sticks left over, depending on if you use a sword or a hoe.
