To create the most powerful level of Beacon, you must first craft a Beacon, which is made using 5 pieces of Glass, 3 Obsidian, and 1 Nether Star, which is acquired by killing the Wither. After getting the block, you must place it atop a pyramid consisting of 4 levels of blocks, the bottom layer being 9 x 9, the next 7 x 7, then 5 x 5, and the Beacon sits on top of the middle of the next 3 x 3 layer. This pyramid can be created out of any of the valuable blocks, so Diamond Blocks, Gold Blocks, Iron Blocks, and Emerald Blocks are all acceptable for this.

The pyramid also does not require any consistency so you can use any of the 4 different blocks anywhere in the pyramid.

Update: Just to clarify, thanks to GO WITH OREO for mentioning that the beacon cannot be built underground, which is mostly true. It can be built underground, but only if the actual Beacon block has a clear path to the sky without any obstruction

Also ItsVip3rCouchYo made the point that the beacon pyramid cannot be hollow and all layers must be full
