    This makes no sense; diamond is a mineral, not a metal. I don't think you can extract anything meaningful from diamonds by just heating it up as much as possible.

    No.  First of all, diamond is a mineral, no a metal.  It doesn’t melt.  Second of all, the burning point of diamond is ridiculously high.

    wow. didn't realize a game where you try not to get killed by zombies, skeletons, and creepers (among other things), as well as try to kill a dragon yourself, needed to be so grounded in reality.

    I think the fact that we can craft armor from diamonds to begin with throws the logic of the entire process out the window.

    The fact that iron, gold, and chain armor can all be smelted down to a nugget gives this idea some amount of logic.

    I'm just not sure I see the point.  The main source of iron/gold/chain gear that I melt down is mob drops from my spawner based farms.  Getting diamond armor from that kind of farm is extremely rare, so I doubt I'd ever get enough diamond nuggets to get one full diamond back.

    This could work. My idea... Some fireworks require diamonds. Making them very expensive. Breaking a diamond makes diamond shards. Use the diamond shards for the firework effect.

    This could be useful, especially with the village and pillage update where it is easier than ever to just get throwaway diamond items to unlock new tiers of trading. or be used in a sort of disassemble system.

    I made an idea about more chains, and diamond nuggets could be used to make Diamond Chain if they decide they want to add Diamond Chain? Thank you!

    Maybe not diamond nuggets, but what about diamond chips?  Diamond chips are a real thing, used in both jewelry and tools.  A diamond chip is an excellent analog to golden and iron nuggets and now netherite scrap. They could be used as the byproduct in recycling of diamond armor, tools and weapons, and also used for other new purposes, like adding a protective and/or decorative layer/sheen to other stuff.

    Broken, used and defective diamonds are in fact recycled into chips (and dust) for other purposes, and while we can't quite "craft" a diamond from diamond chips in the real world, it would make perfect sense in Minecraft.

    Another possible name would be diamond facet.  This has nice imagery, and diamonds are "made up of" facets, even if not quite so "real world" as diamond chips.
