Our name is Minecraft 101, but, there are more than 101 things. The game of Minecraft is amazing, and by "Notch", of Mojang, a game company, Minecraft's base is imagination. You can basically build everything, out of 2,560 bricks, 200 pieces and wood, and 23,000 pieces of dirt. And when a Creeper strikes, or a Zombie, you may get the funny feeling of the future. Your empire, and trespassers and your portal the the End, the place to end it all. But, for example, where is The End? There may be bigger wikis, but as we grow, things can happen. Same in Minecraft. Welcome to Minecraft 101.

Diamonds are items that are rare in Minecraft and are the most valuable items in the game, for the reasons that it is one of the materials used to make the most powerful of tools, Enchantment Tables, and Jukeboxes. Also, Diamond Pickaxes are the only tool that can break through Obsidian, a powerful block. Diamond ore can be found in layers 1-16, found in groups of 1-10. On rare occassions, Diamond can be found in treasure chests, abandoned mine shafts, and villages. Diamond is known as the 2nd rarest ore ever found, behind Emerald. The Diamond has also become a symbol for Minecraft.
