How many diamonds can you find in one vein?



  • I know the smallest is 1 diamond out from my own experience in finding diamonds, and I have found 11 in one vein once. Is this the largest vein that can possibly spawn?



  • Minecraft generates 1 vein per chunk, but doesn't look at other chunks when doing so, so it is theoretically possible (but extremely unlikely) to find a "megavein" of 32 diamonds comprised of 4 adjacent 8-diamond veins on a chunk crossing. It's much more common to find 9-10 diamond "veins" as, say, a 4-diamond and a 6-diamond vein align along a chunk border.
