Diamonds are a vanilla item obtained when Diamond Ore is mined with a pickaxe of at least iron level.
Diamonds have many new uses in Hexxit, usually involving weaponry, tools, and magical items.
Diamonds are more common in Hexxit than vanilla Minecraft - they are often found at the higher levels and even on the sides of mountains along with the other mineral and metal ores.
Note: Diamond ore already yields one Diamond when mined, meaning the 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.
- Because of the Uncrafting Table, a near infinite amount of Diamonds may be generated for nine levels each via a possible exploit with Nether Stars.
