Diamond is a relatively rare and useful resource, and also is the second highest tier currently available, disregarding chrono quest-exclusive items such as the blue cube and blue orb. There are 9 diamond deposits in the snow biome, and none in the forest or ocean biomes, hence the need to craft some cold protection before setting out to find diamonds. Diamonds can be mined by golden pickaxes or higher, or by digging with a shovel.
Diamond deposits appear in different sizes.
- Small deposits can contain up to 5 diamonds
- Medium deposits can contain up to 10 diamonds
- Large deposits can contain up to 15 diamonds
The largest diamond deposits are located in the top right corner of the map.
