Diamonds are a vanilla item dropped when a diamond ore is mined.
Diamonds have a lot of new uses in Hexxit, usually for weaponry, tools, and magical items.
Diamonds are more common in Hexxit than Vanilla Minecraft, often found at the higher levels, even on the sides of mountains along with the other mineral and metal ores.
Note: Diamond ore can be mined to drop one Diamond, using furnace is not recommended.
Diamonds are used in the crafting of the Starbeam Torch, Ice Magus Rod, Jeweled Apple, Diamond Scythe Diamond Big Sword, Diamond Giant Sword, Talisman, Diamond Shield, Diamond Sledge, Diamond Sickle, Reinforced Diamond Chest, Diamond Dagger, Diamond Spear, Hacksaw, HookShoot, Magic Boomerang, Magic Mirror, Crystal Bow, Hexical Diamond, Diamond Plated Scale Armor, and duplicating the Nether Star.
- Due to the Uncrafting Table, a near infinite amount of Diamonds may be generated for nine levels each due to a possible exploit with Nether Stars.
