    We should put emerald weapons between diamond swords and tridents

    I think if we were to do this, you would have to increase the rarity and possibly only have one villager per village that will trade with emeralds

    Its too easy to get emeralds from villagers so I think emerald gear should be not too good.

    You got my vote. I've always thought emerald weapons would be cool. They got iron gold diamond and everything else. Why not emerald

    I think it should have durability of iron and protection of diamond. Nothing OP, but strong enough to be worthwhile.

    The only thing with this is emeralds are the rarest so it should be close to diamond

    While I would normally send such a suggestion to the depths of the Nether, your idea on how strong it should is quite original. Most of the time, it's just green diamond tools and armor, but this actually makes more sense somehow. It's a rare material that should be used as currency or to power a beacon, so making it as fragile as Minecraft-like diamond tools and armor would be in real life is quite the breath of fresh air that gets this suggestion my vote.

    The emerald weapons and tools must have different sprites or it will look really plain

    My suggestion is that emerald armor allows higher enchanting of a single enchantment chosen for each piece. This would allow players to customize their equipment more. I also think the durability (protection, damage, etcetera) should be about the level of iron, maybe a little lower.

    This is a great idea and it would make emerald more useful.

    Or maybe emerald gear gives you certain perks but has lessened protection. The perks could be something like: Increased jump height (Because it’s green like the jump boost particle) Extra protection from Pillagers and Crossbows (Emeralds from villagers used to defend them.) Or it could protect from some fall damage. (Because you find emeralds in the very tall extreme hills and mountain biomes. 

    Edit: And weapons could do extra damage to pillagers

    I think emerald armour should be better than diamond and swords should do 10 atact damage because emeralds are the rarest ore in the game

    I feel that is should have the second highest natural efficiency (behind gold) and as strong as between iron and stone and armor should have less durability then iron but have more protection and have lucky enchant rate as gold.

    @Frankiethekat05  Emerald isn't the rarest since trading with villagers are so easy to find and trade with. Same with raid farms. Emeralds aren't rare and so it shouldn't be so strong.

    I’ve been playing Minecraft  for a wile now and I would love to see the emeralds be more than just a trade and more of a good way to make weapons it should be  stronger than diamond and  give more protection because of how hard it is to find .     Already I’ve only found up to 2 emeralds per game in survival mode  so that’s  a reason to add it.       What would be really cool is a gun that should be put in the game

    Weapons and armor

    With raids making emeralds so much more common i think the strength is good

    One thousand times yes. I'm really tired of only a few types of items. When playing terraria you find SO many options that it is underwhelming coming back to minecraft just to see a few. I enjoy the green color of the emerald and tried it once with a mod. They look great as weaps and armor.

    Also, once you get fortune, diamonds tends to be more common. So it gets boring really fast.

    Emerald armor and tools should be as durable as diamond but only when enchanted, else items made of emerald should be useless and break immediately upon first use.

    Maybe if you are wearing emerald armor, you have a higher chance of getting good trades from villagers

    I think emerald should stay as a currency and not to be usable as a crafting material.

    This would be an awesome addition to the game!I agree with what @Cephalosquid said.  But as the new nether rite tools kind of took the better tools into the new update, I'm not sure if the hype will remain.

    It can be strong as iron because emeralds can be obtained in mass amounts via trading.

    I like the idea but it should be more durable and it should add a special effect to make it interesting like villager discounts when wearing armor or the tools give you taste and weapons give extra damage effects. it could also be an armor upgrade situation like netherite?
