I’m starting a strip mine in my survival world and also I’m curious. What level have to I it is in digging at above bedrock to discover diamond?

12 is actually more dangerous due to the fact that you are one block over lava level, if y=11 is level with the peak of lava, so if you fall in you'll have the ability to get out (unless you space referring to eye level, which has not been presented in F3 due to the fact that 1.8).

You are watching: How many blocks above bedrock is diamond

Between 10 and 15 is a good place come mine, due to the fact that it has good quantities of all minerals v the least risk.

y=15 is not a good level because there is much less diamond over y=12:

A tunnel at y=10 (feet position) would certainly maximize yield since the ceiling is no greater than 12, despite it is one block below the optimal layer the lava, i m sorry is why y=11 is an ext popular (though ns don't take into consideration lava to be a big deal).

Meaning 2 blocks between each branch, so you have T B B T B B T.

T=Tunnel

B=Block

This is the best means to get any type of resources. If you destruction lower, (and girlfriend can), you have to deal with lava pools *above* you, while in ~ y=11 you'll see much fewer the you can't acquire through.

At Level 6, you room going to hit an ext bedrock, and also you'll hit much more lava above you. At 15 and over you'll not acquire as lot diamond, but you will get more lapis.

I'm about to begin a second mine above my y11 mine so I deserve to get more lapis.

I've always heard y = 11 is the ideal spot to dig for diamonds. Idk about the actual math for the being the finest spot however its what I've always used.

Y=10 is what I always tend to mine off of. However, 1.13 usually made mining nearly useless because that mining diamonds, especially beforehand game. Just search in the oceans for Shipwrecks, get diamonds, and treasure maps. Climate follow those endowment maps come the treasure and also find an ext diamonds.

Go right into a cave and stand on the blocks alongside the optimal layer of many lava lakes. Mine on the level (should be approximately level 12 if you're utilizing coordinates)
