    I have been trying all month and can not get this damn dragon.

    • Sai Ko says:

      Same here. Still trying to get this dragon but it is so freaking hard… Sigh

      • casa says:

        Tried at least 30x… and a no diamond.

      • Jeph says:

        FINALLY—after 21 attempts—have a Diamond egg bred and incubating.
        I also got two Aquamarines (one in the cave, one on the island) on the same day.
        Here’s the trend I noticed and have documented:
        I got both gemstone dragons (Aquamarine and Diamond) in the last third of the months in which I was attempting them. Also, I successfully bred with the combinations recommended by the iOS application, DragonCalc (Ice lvl 15 and Mine lvl 15), and further noticed that in all cases, the success was in breeding the parent dragon combinations after 10P at night.
        I wish I/We could sell or trade dragons. I clearly don’t have a need for two Aquamarine dragons.
        Bon Chance a Tout!

          SPEAK UP I CANT HEAR YOU!!!!!! I HAVE RAINBOW……..6 TIMES….[i just cant bring myself to delete them….]

        • terminator says:

          Very very true….. after 23 days of trying ice+mine i got it atlast….(am using android version of dragon vale).
          its seems to be strange coz..i fif get platinum and diamond after 10 pm.

    • Max says:

      me too! i dont understand. i have both level 15 too

  2. Maz says:

    Hi! Add me gem for gem everyday. Game center is bezmazgov.

  3. Kingnoel says:

    WOOT! Finally got it after almost two weeks on both epic island and cave. 24 hour breeding time on island 30 hour inc. time. This is definitely the hardest gemstone to breed so far. Good luck everyone! Raising them to lvl 18 MAY have helped. :)

    • allie says:

      Level doesnt matter, regardless of what Dragonvale claims! I’ve used Level 20 dragons all month and NO diamond. And level 20 are supposed to give “greatly increased chances” so if people with less than level 20 dragons are being successful, but I try all month with level 20 ice & mine, then the “level theory” is a lie.

  4. Nate says:

    This is definitely the hardest so far. I have been doing both caves many times a day since the beginning of April and no luck. But I did get a lot of platinum dragons. Also the new terradiam dragon is mud and sandstorm. Got it first try.

  5. Tiger says:

    I have only three islands

  6. Donovan says:

    How do u add people..I need help wit dat so I can trade gems

  7. Noah says:

    Whats the third egg??

  8. Sara says:

    This is absolutely hopeless. Been trying to breed this dragon since the start of April and still no luck! I’ve raised them to level 15, and so far I’m just getting treasure dragons.

    • Eugenius91 says:

      Ohhhhh yeeeeah!

      I finally got that damn Diamond Dragon. Now i Got till end of Month to get the egg. Because the Diamond is the most epic one of all.
      Best of luck to all you otter guys WHO havent Got it yet. I know how frustrating it is.. I have spend over 300 diamonds myself trying to get it. It paid out :)

      • Noah says:

        Lol got mine 2nd try ice and mine 42 hr incubation

      • ampandkids says:

        Ive been trying FOUR TIMES a day since the first and still dont have one!!!!! All FOUR of my dragons are at level 15, both my breeding island and cave are up graded and NOTHING >:( but my husband breeds his level 11’s 3 times and bam he has one!!!!!!!! Im so *!??ed i can barely stand to look at him. What am I doing wrong?!?!?!?!

  9. Lacey says:

    Is there any OTHER combos !
    Like I know ice and mine is meant to work but it ain’t working at all.
    I’ve tried from the day this dragon was released but I’m getting nothing good.
    Add me on GC
    Lucy Pie <3
    Plz tell if u know any other combos

    • Eugenius91 says:

      Hey Lucy. Some dude wrote that he Got the Diamond dragon by breeding Metal and Cold.i tried that combo a few times with no luck. You could try it out, who knows ;p


    • Allie says:

      Gem dragons only have one possible combo. Don’t waste your time trying others.

  10. Tylerpark17 says:

    I got this FIRST TIME on EPI with lvl 10 mine ont the left and lvl 15 ice on the right!

  11. Ari says:

    I am so happy I just got it. Also got a silver which I was also trying to get. Add Tyto Alba4. Gems for gems.

  12. fyreflys says:

  13. SHUDIZO says:

    Come on add me I am SHUDIZO

  14. Nic says:

    I hate this dragon. Hate, hate, hate. I have tried over 100 times. Got 7 platinum and 2 silver. Started playing Dragon City instead!

  15. George says:

    Got it,first try with ice and mine,all level 10.

  16. Allie says:

    3 silvers, 2 platinums. Glad to hear I’m not the only one having trouble with this dragon. It will be the only dragon I won’t have, also the only egg. I’ve bought probably around 5 50 gem packs and also spent all my in game gems. I’m not spending any more on this dragon. Add me (not to trade) Nate E Bug.

    • Allie says:

      Finally got one, upgraded breeding cave lvl 15s. Then I went to try the same pair on EBI and got a second one. Whew close call.

  17. Lacey says:

    Omi gosh !!!!
    after trying all month I finally got it, at least I’ve got lots of patience. :)

    Ice and mine really does work !
    Good luck everyone :):)

  18. Mike.Zulu.Eta says:

    This combination is legit I bred mine in normal breeding cave. Rice n Sporks come and visit my park :)

  19. lora rocco says:

    I have been trying all month as well. I have not had any success with this or any other dragon that gives gems. I have no friends to trade gems because my game is based off face book. If anyone wants to be my friend…Lora Rocco on fb. I play everyday and will send gems. Thanks

  20. b_schurkens says:

    This is à hard one. I’ve been tying since the start of the month.
    Need some people to trade gems with. Add me on gamecentre.
    I play every day.

  21. appleman2137 says:

    Lol first try bluemoon and equinox drags lvl 10

  25. Cermeling says:

    I just bred ice & mine and I have a 39 hour & 10 min breeding time… Any ideas? That’s a really odd breeding time and it’s not listed.

  26. Launiss says:

    I’ve tried since the 1..april, 4 times a day and just get mine dragons -.- is there another breeding combi? Or just cold and mine?

  27. reydash17 says:

    How do you breed this dragon

  28. bob says:

    Ha got it first try level 10 ice and mine on regular breeding island. Tried again and got it so now I have one for decoration

  29. Genie says:

    Maybe getting the diamond ring decoration would help? I’m not sure but I know the Ami’Lya pond helped to get the river dragon :/

  32. K1ID4NK says:

    Finally got this dragon. Keep trying guys don’t give up

  33. Liz says:

    After everyday breeding, 4 silver and lots of steel dragons later, I upgraded both my dragons to level 15 and got one first try with the upgraded levels on the breeding island. Finallllllyyyyyyy!

  34. lora rocco says:

    Can anyone explain why or how some get it on the first try and others not at all? Just trying to understand who would make a game with so much inconsistency.

    • Allie says:

      Imagine a spinning wheel like wheel of fortune. Lots of common dragons on the wheel and then just a couple of spaces for rares. In this case 3 different rare dragon spots. Someone might spin the wheel and by luck land on the diamond dragon the first try. Most of us will have to spin many times to land on a rare. It might not be the rare you even wanted… Hope that helps a bit

  35. Aj says:

    Hey guys looking for a steady group to send and receive gems with need 4 more people add me

  36. sfs says:

    I’ve been trying this all month on both breeding island and cave, normally about two a day on each, so we’re talking like 80 attempts now! Still nothing! Going to be so annoyed if I don’t get this in the next 5 days, same thing happened for amethyst :( any advice? tried level 10s and level 15s

  37. leeroyjenkinz says:

    I Got A 48 Hour Time With Ice And Mine Anyone Know What It Could Be?

  38. Caitlin says:

    Just got 47 breeding time :( another silver D: god I have been trying all month and I want this one most of all because its my gemstone dragon for my birthday… I have all my dragons at Lviv 7 maybe I should make them 10?

  39. binx says:

    Somehow I’ve bred three of these this month. Ice and mine is definite. I tried last month for the gem dragon and had NO luck. Summoned the gem island and soon enough I was popping out diamonds. I know they say it doesn’t increase your chances, but it definitely helped me. Keep trying- it is possible! I definitely thought it just wasn’t going to happen for me but after buying the island I started getting the dragons. Look at it this way: you’ll need it if you get the dragons and it looks pretty freakin cool anyway. Good luck guys!!

    • binx says:

      Anyone interestered in trading gems or want another island to look at, please add me on Facebook (Caitlin Enright) Just let me know this is where you found me so I accept you! I play every day and would love some more friends :)

  40. allie says:

    One of the “loading notes” says that “using 2 level 20 dragons greatly increases the chances of getting a rare dragon”…WHAT A LOAD OF HOOOOEY!!! I can tell you, it makes NO difference whatsoever. A big lie, so dont bother trying to fatten them up to Lvl 20!

  41. Justin says:

    I got the Diamond dragon after 5 tries

  42. Aimee says:

    I’ve tried for this dragon all month and got nothing of any interest. Only mine and ice dragons. Its making me not want to play this anymore…

  43. andraya says:

    FINALLY got a 30hr. breeding time in EBI after try 25465858585!! geez this better be a diamond! Ive gotten 3 silvers and like 15 quicksilvers :/

  44. PoomPs says:

    Just got gifting tree. Gem for gem! ID: yam_poomps:

  45. Shawn says:

    Been trying all month, still no luck however. Last month i got the gem dragon on April 1 1205 am…. Not cool, I’m getting the feeling it’s gonna do the same for me for the diamond dragon.add me gem for gem, no gem after 2 days I delete you. Glyphdomina

  46. Caaaro! says:

    ADD me for daily gem trades


    Is my GC 😉

  47. chachitreefrog says:

    Tired all month and nothing. I tired for all the special dragons this month and nothing. I guess level 10 dragons are useless. What a let down.

  48. guest says:

    I’ve tried 4 times a day every day all month. The best I’ve gotten is a 2 day egg with 24 hours left before I can incubate it.

  49. dean says:

    I got one finally after about 40 tries with ice and mine, both level 10.
    How do you add people? I’m on android

    • dean says:

      I will share gems but I’m not on iPhone, so haven’t got game centre, its logged in through facebook so not sure how to add people
