Blocks of Diamond (also known as Diamond Blocks) are decorative mineral blocks that do not appear in normally generated maps. They currently serve no crafting purpose, functioning instead as a decorative block and as a means of storing diamonds in a compact fashion. They use the same texture on all six sides. The Block of Diamond is one of the more difficult items to acquire in-game, seeing as it is comprised of diamonds which are themselves a rare and non-renewable resource.

[edit] Trivia

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