Diamonds are currently the second rarest (Emeralds spawn less often than Diamonds) and most useful mineral to find in-game.
Diamonds can also be used to create Jukeboxes.
However, to find diamond, you must dig between Y:16 to bedrock at the bottom of the map. Diamond is not dropped as the ore block, it is instead dropped as it's own item, and can be used right away, without any sort of smelting.
