Emeralds are fairly rare items on Minecraft. They can be obtained by trading with NPC Villagers, found in Jungle or Desert Temples, or by mining the rare Emerald Ore. Emeralds currently have no use except in Blocks of Emerald and in Villager trading.
- Emerald Ore, Lapis Lazuli Ore, and Redstone Ore, and Coal Ore are the only Ores that cannot be crafted into tools and weapons.
- Diamonds were called Emeralds in the Indev file.
