I know, i know. The blue diamond from Minecraft is really iconic but i never really like the look of the block. Today i finally decided to make a new texture for it with a color closer to real diamond. In this pack you can also find a recolor for the base diamond block texture. If you want to use it, just rename dimond_block_alt.png to diamond_block.png to replace the actual texture.
This pack is mostly a recolor of the base items but i'm planing to release a new pack with different textures.

As always, let me know what you think and enjoy!

Any idea when this pack will be updated to 1.17? I'd love to use it, I bet the white colour of the diamond would look amazing against the deepslate block!

Not gonna lie, I kind of like this better than the usual blue diamond color. It makes it feel more magical as well as faithful to the stuff in real life too!

Thanks! Actually blue diamond really exist, they are just really rare and really expensive. I also like it better. I'm a bit annoyed that the color look really similar to iron expecially with enchant, but i still think it look good.

Holy smokes this is amazing. The blocks kinda look magical-ish.
I kinda feel like this would be better as a netherite retexture tho.

Ooh, I quite like it! It looks pretty!

If theres one small complaint I have, its that the ore texture looks off. perhaps you could change the shape to make it look more crystal-like?

I agree, this pack is just a recolor. I'm planing to do a retexture of it to change all of them.

very cool! but if you don't know, diamonds in real life can have other colors, such as red, green and blue, not just white. so diamonds in Minecraft being blue is not so wrong as you might think.

Yes but those colors are all extremely rare. "
Diamonds with natural pink, blue, orange, green, red, and violet bodycolors are extremely rare.

Out of 100,000 diamonds, only a few will have one of the extremely rare colors. The color can have any intensity between "very light" and "vivid"."

I know it could have another color, but i didn't know it could be so saturated. I still prefer to have a white diamond even if it's not totally white. This light blue feel to flashy for me and i find it hard to use in the world without looking out of flashing . The only use i can see is showing off. With a texture like this i can see myself use it in build.

they rarely are ever that vivid. "but blue diamonds with very high color intensity that display a deep blue color are the rarest."


source: https://www.leibish.com/frequently-asked-questions-about-blue-diamonds-article-555#:~:text=With%20regards%20to%20the%20various,%2C%20Pink%2C%20and%20Red%20stones.


"The price of a 0.3 carat light blue diamond costs $15,700 on average."

source: https://www.diamonds.pro/education/blue/#:~:text=Blue%20Diamond's%20Rarity&text=The%20more%20intense%20the%20color,Cushion%20Cut%20Diamond%20costs%20%24420%2C100.


from what i can find people have said a diamond block in minecraft should be about 17,500,000 carats and divided by nine that would come out to 1,944,444.44444 carats per diamond. multiplying the price for a single blue diamond carat (according to my math about$47,100 for a carat) and the amount of carats that would equal about $91,583,333,333.1 per diamond. That would be nearly impossible to get that many blue diamonds in real life and you'd have to be the richest person in the world to afford just one.

Hahahaha thx for that random fact, it made my day. But that mean that I am richer than expected the the PMC server! I have about 5 stack of diamond block! But I'm still guessing with white diamond I should still be rich enough :p
