    Minecraft already does this.  When reading the text when the world loads, diamonds can be found by mining under Y15 (though not sure the new low limit).  This has been around for awhile now.


    Dig down diagonally to make a long staircase.  When below Y15, start digging a tunnel.  You will eventually find diamonds, but it may take several hundred blocks to find some.  Alternatively, start digging out large sections below Y15, but be careful of lava and water lakes, as both can cause flooding.


    I recommend using an enchanted pickaxe with mending and unbreaking, as this process will consume regular iron pickaxes rather quickly.
