A Block of Diamond, also known as a Diamond Block, is a Block that first appeared in Minecraft Indev, and it can be crafted by putting nine Diamonds in a Crafting Table. Diamond Blocks can only be mined successfully with an Iron or Diamond Pickaxe. To get the Diamonds back, simply put the Diamond Block in the Crafting Grid to split it back into nine Diamonds. Diamond Blocks can be used to build a "pyramid" for a Beacon.But due to diamonds being rare,it is recommended for the player to find a different building material for the beacon.

- In Minecraft Pocket Edition, there was a glitch that if you renamed 9 diamonds with an anvil, you could craft a diamond block and still keap the diamonds thus, creating infinite diamonds. The same could be done to any mineral that could be crafted into a block. However, this bug was patched.
