    Emeralds are a currency.
    It doesn't matter how rare the ore is, you could still trade with villagers and instantly have a full set
    This wouldn't make much sense

    Bro just consider trading with armorsmiths, weaponsmiths and toolsmiths to convert your emeralds to diamond armor/tools..

    bad idea emeralds are used for trading plus they can be easily obtained through villages

    May maybe the only way to get in though is bye trading with a weapon smith and the armour at a village.

    I feel like emerald armor and weapons should be only a tiny bit better than nether it’s because it will be new if you actually listen to my comment.

    I'd say combine gold tools and armour with emerald blocks at the tool station to produce "Gemerald" tools and armour.
    Its as fast as gold but as durable as iron.

    Piglins would also treat you as if you're wearing gold.

    For those who say it should be more powerful: no, because the emerald is rare IN NATURE, but if you trade with the villagers you can get a lot of it. But if it would be useless ... I think more than anything else that the emerald would be in my idea of ​​jewelry.

    No. Just NO. Emeralds are special and unique, here's why:

    • trading, with which you can get both enchantments and the second-highest tier of armour. 
    • powering beacons, as it is the only block that can power beacons that are not used for armour and tools. (giving it its own special use so you don't have to use up your gold, iron, diamonds or netherite)
    • decoration, yes this does count as a use, hence the honeycomb block.
    • not everything has to be an armour/tool it would add nothing to the game if added in the ways mods do it. It would add nothing to the gameplay.
    • Emerald armours and tools are like a trademark of many mods, and degrade from creativity much like verticle slabs. If they were to add this without a unique look (NOT just green diamond armour) concept and niche and not add sharks or vertical slabs, it would simply be an abomination. 

    If it were added, it should be added that you can use the smithing table to add emeralds to iron tools to upgrade them or copper to iron tools to upgrade them. Emerald's buff could be a buff to enchantability or a buff to trading. 

    If tools were added, they would have to be niche, such as working as if they already had silk-touch, however, copper or bronze would fill this role better.

    Honestly, I can hardly see why this is even under review. If I could, I would downvote this. Twice.

    Nope, Emerald is just used for currency.

    Just to make this clear, the developers added emeralds intending that it would be used as a currency in Minecraft. Why diamond and iron have amour purposes and are not a currency? Because emeralds are the main currency. Also, it would be pretty much useless overall, the developers already added Netherite so I don't think we need to add another armor on top of that.

    I have always wanted emerald weapons and tools to give them more utility although I would not be sure of an emerald armor.

    Great idea, but this would be too easy to obtain from villages

    I think that this would add nothing too the game. Emeralds are for villager trading and for making beacons. Because emeralds are so easy to get, you could easily get hundreds of sets of gear. If emerald gear is added then at least make it similar to leather in durability and protection. However, someone did say that emerald armour could make villagers give you better deals which I think would be a nice addition to emerald gear if it is going to be in the game.

    It will be too op unless you make the recipe something like out of emerald blocks or emerald ore then smelted into normal.

    Then what's the point if they are rare AND useless?

    it should be in between diamond and netherite (meaning the sword deals 7.5 damage)and wearing emeral armor should increase good villager trade offer chances

    2 things... 1: minecraft devs have already announced that unless new gear adds something to the the gear list, they will not add it. ex: netherite, which added a whole new level of gear. this sounds like your just mixing and matching normal armor. 2: i think that there should be more uses to emeralds, but tools and armor is not the way to go

    Emerald is a currency in Minecraft
    I don't think Emerald gear wouldn't fit

    I love it! But it's way too weak. It needs to be stronger like maybe in-between iron and diamond.

    I think that emrald armour should be very OP because it is very rare and it would be cool if it gave you slowness because it would be heavy

    I think the tools should be a little stronger since emeralds are rare and if they were that weak there would be no point in getting them
