Where to find Diamonds in Minecraft 1.18: Diamond levels and biomes

Minecraft 1.18 was released and players discovered that the ore distribution and world generation mechanisms have been completely overhauled. Most of us want to know where to find diamonds, as they are one of the most profitable ores (and also the rarest).

It is important to note that Diamond Ore does not appear below Y 16 in Minecraft 1.18 and can still be generated in any biome. It has seen a dramatic change in how it generates in Minecraft 1.18 to better match the way that Diamonds form in real-life.

Diamon Ore can be found most often below Y -59, but the full range of generating is between Y -64 and Y 16. Because of how low it generates, there is no preferred biome for a generation. A Badlands biome at Y 16 is more likely to produce Diamond Ore than a Mountain biome at Y 16.

Despite all that, strip mining still seems to be the best way to locate Diamond Ore veins. You just need to move 60 blocks lower.
