once you find one dig around it, because a lot of the times you'll dig one below you and there will be lava. -12 is hella swamped with lava. Once you've dug around it. Stand below it and let it fall right into your pocket.

Fell into a cave, made a mine. That is also how I amused myself and made the game more challanging before 1.8, after 1.8 i didn't play. xD

I'm a cave dweller so I mostly just find them naturally.

TooManyItems. Done.

Jk, the way i usually get diamonds is when i come across an abandoned mineshaft, I do a bit of exploring. If it's low enough, i usually find find a diamond or two around every few corners. And as CityofAthos said, i dig around it to ensure that there aren't any around the corners, and that there isn't any lava to melt my precious loot.

1. Dig to Y: 12 (Coords), using a stairway or another way (A safe way).
2. Dig a nice little room 12x12 for example (Number divisible by 4 looks best).
3. Start from a wall and go to one side and dig forward for however far you want.
4. Go back and move over 3 and start a new mine forward (Repeat until diamond find).
5. When you find diamond, dig around and collect with an iron+ pickaxe.

(If you find a cave, explore it, they usually will have some diamonds or other good ores.)
(If you find lava, you are usually safe because lava is often on layer 11 while you are on layer 12 lava won't flow on you, but still be careful. Digging around lava is a good way to find ores, but it's risky aswell).

I normally just find a good hole, and go down to the lower levels, and mine in the hardest places to get to (alot of times next to a lava pool), almost always works, and once i got 15 diamonds next to one lava pool!

X-ray, Nah joke. I do branch mining. I do a 4x4 hole into the ground and than start to branch mine. I also dig 20x20 holes sometimes. So be careful to have me on the servers xP
