Seeds can be hit and miss. Sometimes you get a good one with resources and dungeons close by and other times you get screwed over and cant find a thing! This seed is 1 of the best seeds i have ever used. It spawns you right next to an NPC Village along with a chest that contains 6 diamond and 2 pieces of iron chest armor. Along with this awesome chest there is a mine shaft right below that contains even more great loot to get you off to a great start. I have tested this seed on the PS3 version and as you can see from the video below, everything is as described in the table below. This is definitely the best seed for survival mode in Minecraft.
This seed no longer works with the latest patches. An updated diamond seed for the latest versions of the game can be found here.

I used this seed with the PS3 version of Minecraft. This seed will also work for the Xbox 360 version of the game but i am unsure if it will work for the PC/MAC versions of the game.
Once you spawn head straight for the NPC village and go to the blacksmith building where you will find a chest with 6 diamond. Then you can start digging down to find the mineshaft along with all these precious diamonds nearby.
To find these coordinates you will need to use a map. You should have a map in your inventory as soon as you spawn so you don’t have to waste any time getting started. At the top of the map you will see a bunch of numbers these are your coordinates where you currently stand. The coordinates below are formatted as x,y,z
NPC Village : 260, 66, 299
The blacksmith building in this village contains a chest with 6 diamonds and 2 pieces of iron chest armor.
Mine Shaft : 254, 13, 192
This shaft is on a very low level so there is plenty of diamond along with a chest containing 1 diamond at 215, 15, 179.
End Portal : 120, 31, -4
There is already 1 Eye of the Ender in this portal along with a chest nearby that contains 1 Ender Pearl.
Above Ground Spawner : 162, 65, 172
This is very close to the NPC village in the desert. I found a pig saddle and a enchanted book inside the chest.
