- "The diamond is a rare, transparent, extremely hard gemstone of great value."
Diamonds are a rare and valuable ingredient. There is only one Diamond Mine in all of Vvardenfell, and it is fairly well guarded. Dwemer ruins are a good place to find diamonds, as the barrels in those locations often contain various gems. Another place to find them is in Daedric shrines as offerings, though some of these are cursed and will cause a hostile dremora lord to appear behind you. Cursed diamonds have a unique ID:
ingred_Dae_cursed_diamond_01, so will not stack with regular diamonds, and can be mixed together with them to produce a potion with all four effects. Sugar-Lips Habasi of the Balmora Thieves Guild will request a diamond during the Diamonds for Habasi quest.
Diamonds are one of only two ingredients in vanilla Morrowind that can be used to create Invisibility potions, the other ingredient being Bittergreen Petals. Both the Tribunal and Bloodmoon expansion adds one other ingredient with an Invisibility effect.
