Diamond Shards are an essential ingredient in making the Wrath Igniter and Diamond Cutting Head. The recipe for a diamond shards is fairly expensive, requiring obsidian, TNT, and a diamond block. Diamond Shards can only be safely created by placing a Craft Packet in a Craftpacket Stamper (removed in newer versions like Factorization 0.8.29) or by placing a diamond block on the ground next to a TNT and lighting it. You can make the Craft Packet directly on a crafting table.

- 4x TNT
- 1x Diamond Block (GregTech: 9 Diamonds in an IC2 compressor)
- Output: 1 Craft Packet
Then, place the Craft Packet in a Craftpacket Stamper to obtain 18 Diamond Shards.
