It takes less than a second to mine diamond ore with an iron pickaxe in Minecraft, but how long would it take to mine this stuff in real life? The channel Whats Inside dives into this exact question, taking a chunk of real-world diamond ore, and trying to mine it with actual pickaxes. As expected, it doesn't go as fast as in-game, but the results are pretty interesting nonetheless. One thing that stands out early: naturally occurring diamonds usually aren't blue or turquoise, but yellowish or clear. Neat!
Do they eventually find any diamonds in that ore? We will find out soon!
