The Diamond Bee is a type of Bee added by Extra Bees. They are notable for making Diamonds a renewable resource.


Pure-bred Diamond Bees require Rock Flowers to work. They will tolerate any Climate except for Hellish and any type of Humidity. By default they have all three extra abilities, able to work at night, during rain and under cover.


Diamond Bees produce Rocky Combs every 7.6 minutes. They produce Diamond Combs every 150 minutes = 2.5 hours as their specialty from which Tiny Piles of Diamond Dust and Tiny Piles of Coal Dust can be won. Note that production times are an approximation based on the bee's base production speed and the product's rarity. They do not reflect actual production time.
