  2. bob says:

    Tried around 30-35 times,keep on getting motly,qiucksilver,mine,ice,steel and 1 platinum dragon

    • AlyzieDGamer says:

      That’s funny, I constantly get Silver and Platinum dragons -.- it’s annoying having to wait 2 days in order to use the breeding island again

    • Cephalotus says:

      I feel your pain …though I have yet to get a platinum, just all of the more common ones you mentioned

      • Joelcromo says:

        I feel the same as you guys I have tried it like 40-50 times since the dragon first came out I have never had this much trouble course I have like 7 different breeds of the stupid gemstone dragons and I still haven’t got it and I have yet to get a platinum and I got one silver and a hell of a lot of the ones that bob mentioned ^_^

    • Dink53 says:

      Well try upgrading your breeding cave or island

  3. Shayness says:

    I dont know if this is just me or not, but ive gotten 2 Motley dragons from this combo as well as a silver and platinum dragon.

    The motley dragons are confusing though since ice and mine dont have earth or fire in them…

  4. Eugenius91 says:

    Im not getting the diamond dragon either.. Been trying with lvl 15 ice – 15 mine, everyday, several times a day since it Got out, no luck. I really like this Gem dragon and the Egg is so awesome. Its the only one i Need, so imam get a bit disapointed if i dont get it..

    Btw, ADD me for gems :) also let me know what you Think of my park, its not quite done yet, but check out the islands that is done :)

    • Rachel says:

      Me too! I have upgraded ebi and ebc and am using level 15 dragons! This is so frustrating! I know sometimes on these macenstien threads have another suggestion that works too but it looks like I may not get my diamond dragon. ?

  5. Susan says:

    50 tries and nothing but, silver, platinum and a lot of dragons I don’t want, all my gems are gone. So sad.

  6. Junkle j says:

    Hardest dragon to breed ever! No luck here.

  7. Eric Loh says:

    After 10 days of breeding I finally got 1

  8. Boeritn says:

    I have a breeding time of 13 hours. It could be motley, bloom or river dragon ..
    Which one will it be?

  9. Sara says:

    I got 2 in 3 tries- level ten ice and mine. Don’t knownow that happened.

  10. Ashley 1234 says:

    Same prob been breeding for this dragon like 5 days now. Keep getting motley ice and I got one platinum. Hard one to get. Add me for gems if u like Ashley 1234

  11. binx says:

    Been trying and trying and trying and just got a 30 hour breeding time… Woohooo it really IS possible!

  12. Ngamer says:

    I tried like 25 times, still no diamond. I ‘only’ got a motley, 2siilver dragons And a platinum dragon with this combination

  13. IceQueen says:

    wish I could trade someone. Just got my second diamond. If they ever make it possible I’d trade it for a moon.

  14. paola says:

    i put ice and mine both level 15 and theyre breeding for two days ?

  15. Jisu says:

    Eep! First try in my EBI! Took longer to breed a Mine for it~
    I was expecting a few more Motleys, got four this month trying for everything else (Bloom, Spring). He’s pretty much the cutest dragon though, so I’m not complaining. :3

  16. Diadude says:

    I got diamond fourth try in epic breeding island. Ice on the left and mine on the right

  17. Kman102 says:

    Ugh I have tried like 100 times and all I have gotten were ice ,iceberg, and steel! Add me kman102 I trade gems everyday.

  18. Phileepsha says:

    Ugh! I’ve just got ANOTHER 38 hour >.<. My fifth one while trying to get the diamond!(2 silver, 2 platinum so far…) I've got all if them but this one and this is by far the hardest to get.

    • Eugenius91 says:

      Yeah it sucks.. The Sapphire was just as hard. Didnt get it the Month it was released. The only reason i Got it was because they brought all the dragons back few month ago

  19. Kman102 says:

    Ugh I keep on getting iceberg ice and quicksilver! I trade gems btw kman102

  20. jmm22RULES says:

    Got one second try! 30 hrs!
    Friend me on gc: jmm22RULES

  21. NineVoltPenguin says:

    Add me on gamecenter, my name is NineVoltPenguin

  22. Giggles says:

    Has anyone managed to get this diamond dragon with any other combo other than ice and mine? Was just wondering if it was possible to get it with anything else, as I’ve been tryig ice and mine for ages and keep getting iceberg or mine.

  23. Dragonnewbie says:

    Working on getting this now – have a gifting tree and no one to exchange gems with! :-( Add me on FB – vpmm bdpa-cincy

  24. Kingnoel says:

    I’ve been running both cave and island for nearly 2 weeks now, nothing but junk and platinums. Usually get my gemstone in the first week (this is the last gemstone I need, may be that’s why?). Seems backflip is changing the rules, it’s becoming more frustrating than fun :(

    • Kolabear007 says:

      Lol needing only this gemstone can’t be the reason because I need more than this one. Frustrating when everyone says I got it using this pairing on the first or few tries and we try and try to no availe.

  25. Jason says:

    Now that I got this one I have them all what the heck am I supposed to do now

  26. Kaffrin says:

    Trying to buy an epic breedin island, but I don’t have a lot of gems, and have kind of a long way to go. Please add me on Game Center and help me out :)
    Ill try to send you them back in return.

  27. BlakxRose says:

  28. kid says:

    I bred lechien and storm and the time is 6 hours what is it?

  29. Chickd3 says:

    I’ve tried50 times and still can’t get a gemstone dragon of my birth month! It really isn’t right. I mean I have gotten all iceberg, silver, steel, ice, silver, motley, and still no diamond! I’m using level 10 ice on left and level 10 mine on right. Regular breeding cave. Only four gems but only 6 friends. No dragonsai tree. Advice anyone?

  30. Voloyal says:

    Still no luck! I’m seeing the same trend that I’m stuck in – 2 Platinums and 2 Silver Dragons for me as well! Too bad they’re just vendor trash to me..
    Also, I need ONE person to trade gems with. Game Center name is the same as my posted name on here.

  31. Me, myself and I says:

    Finally got one!!! Ice (level14) mine (level 13). It was torture. Constantly breeding in both island and enhanced breeding cave. Got it in the regular island not epic.

  32. Jcjeo says:

    Please add me on gamecenter for daily gem for gem my ID is crisislord

  33. Ch3wy says:

    This dragon hate me. I have yet to get it, I got Plat on the first try and now I can’t get over a 12 hr breeding time. /sigh….

  34. Kristina (Redhead Wench) says:

    I’m up to 5 silvers now on this pairing alone! Sooooo frustrated because I already had my silver dragons/egg. Now it just clogs up my island/cave and lessens the times I can try for diamond. I lost track of attempts after 35 so I’m bound to be at 50 by now. I’ve spent all my gems and over $500 million for food to upgrade dragons. I’ve gotten multiples of EVERY other outcome possible except for platinum (which i already have) & Diamond. UUGGGHHHH!!!!!!!

  36. Cephalotus says:

    FINALLY! Took what felt like forever, but I finally got a Diamond today!

  37. jessb says:

    Anyone else not have the diamond dragon as an option to buy in eggs? I still have the aquamarine available. So confused.

    • jessb says:

      But it definately updated because I have the meteor available… I have a kindle fire

    • Clare lou86 says:

      Try updating again as I had meteor available but still needed 2 update 2 get diamond in buy option x

      • Kingnoel says:

        I had to delete the dragonvale app and re-install to get it to show up.

        • Eugenius91 says:

          Breeding this awesome dragon is not possible.. 18 days days, 200-400 gems wasted.. This is getting on my nerves. I know Im not gonna get this dragon so my only hope is that they bring it back, like they did brought all dragons back in december..

          Btw ADD me.


  38. MindySue1971 says:

    I am looking for 2 more people to trade gems with daily. Only serious traders apply. I am tired of those who say they will and then don’t. I will trade gem for gem. ID is mindysue1971

  39. Nic says:

    83 failed attempts with ice and mine. Hatched 6 platinum. Only dragon harder than this was Sapphire. Tried all September for that but failed. Then tried the entire extended breeding time, so about 10 weeks. Finally got one the last day. Ugggg

    • Joelcromo says:

      (Sarcasm) I love it how I have bred 9 rainbow dragons and 2 leap year dragons but yet I still have no diamond I poises me off add me gem 4 gem (if I can get to you sorry if I don’t send you that gem when I should cause I think that I have to many friends and the app closes while I’m in the friend list)

    Well add me to the list. I am so frustrated. I am using a level 15 ice and level 18 mine. Over 60 tries, nothing. Also, I have a gem tree but no one to trade with. I am on every day and would be glad to trade with someone who will send them to me every day too.

  48. Greckoez says:

    After 30-35 times i finally got this dragon. So Mine and ICE Works.

  49. $(tatty)$ says:

    Finally got it!!! Have been trying everyday since the 1st day of release, and 1 week on both islands. Got it on EBI with lvl 15s…after 2 platinums and silvers.

    Welcome to add, and can use some gems if you’ve spare slots


  50. Ch3wy says:

    Finally got a Diamond after much frustration. After getting a Plat, a Silver and so many others in between.
    So the Ice Mine combo does work, just takes patience. I seriously thought I wasn’t getting this one.
