Emerald is an extremely rare gem in Minecraft (even rarer than the
ItemCSS
Diamond
). It is the main currency used in the Villager trading system.

Sources

Emeralds can be mined from Emerald Ore, which can only be found in Extreme Hills Biomes and Roofed Forest Biomes, making them extremely rare to find. Emeralds will only drop when mined with a Pickaxe made of Iron or Diamond.

Emeralds can also be found in Villages, as they are the main currency used in the Villager trading system, replacing the Ruby, an item found in older versions of Minecraft.

Emeralds can rarely be found in the chests of Desert and Jungle Temples, similarly to many other ore materials.

An Emerald may also drop when a player kills a Vindicator or Evoker.

Uses

Current uses of Emeralds include trading with Villagers, activation of
BlockCSS
Beacons
, and decorative purposes, as nine of them can be used to craft a
BlockCSS
Block of Emerald
.

Trivia

  • They are technically rarer than Diamonds, but can't be crafted into any tools or armor.
  • The gem itself isn't rare, as it can be obtained through Villager trading. It is just the ore that is rare.
  • The Emerald was originally going to be Ruby.
    • Jeb released a screenshot where he is using a Ruby texture for the Villager trading system. Jeb changed the idea to make Emeralds instead of Rubies, but he accidentally released a 1.3 snapshot using the Ruby texture. However, it was still named Emerald, even though it had a Ruby texture.
