    Agreed, but with how rare emeralds are compared to the other minerals, I think it would be better to place them at a higher tier. Maybe emerald equipment could have the same mining speed/protection/damage output as gold equipment, but with a durability closer to diamond?

    I think that given how rare emeralds are, they should perform on a level between iron and diamond

    Why does this have so many votes? This adds nothing of value, its just another armor no one would use.

    I think it would be way better if it had a bonus of better deals with Villagers or something.

    I think it shouldn't be that weak, but instead a rival of diamond armor. For example, diamond might provide better strength, but emerald could have better protection. So far, emeralds have no purpose but for villager trading. This would add another aspect to the game that has you decide whats important, like silk touch vs fortune 3.

    People are saying emeralds are rare however 6 pumpkins can get 1 emerald so they clearly not as rare as diamonds. However this could be a good idea if in instead of being used for protection it could be used to buff trading.

    It's about time we get emerald armor, tools, and weapons

    What if emerald weapons increased a beacon's effect or range to add a unique feature that makes sense. And could decrease villager prices?

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    The reason the emerald equipment items are so low in stats is because you can trade with Villagers to acquire emeralds in mass amounts.

    Maybe only tools but no armor.

    Emeralds are used in this game as currency, and much like gold in real life (when it was still used as currency) it is redundant to use it as anything but currency and decorative reasons. Armour and weapons made of this material should not be undertaken for the sole reason that it is meant only to be currency and decoration

    Maybe emerald items are much easier to enchant and have stronger enchantments?

    We can still do the emerald stuff but add a new type of emerald that can only be mined with an efficiency diamond pickaxe. The emerald is Perfect Emerald, found in emerald ores (normal ones) and cannot be traded with villagers.

    This would add nothing to the game; furthermore it would be a waste of processing space! Sorry to shoot down your idea though :)

    We definitely don't need another tier of armor or weapons, especially a gem set. That's just my opinion though.

    Green being my favorite color, and given how easy the game has come to be, I would definetily wear emerald armor and tools, even if they are worse than diamond, but they should be made out of emerald blocks so you can't get mass amounts of them and or make it so you can only get them through chests, emerald could be to diamond like chainmail is to iron, but let emerald have a little advantage like have better enchantments.
    I really like the idea and you have my vote.

    I think that, because of the rarity, it should be stronger/ or more durable than diamonds

    Emeralds are only good for currency it would be nice to see some green tools and armor show up in the game.

    I think Emeralds are too easy to obtain from villagers and it wouldn't add anything to the game. 

    Perhaps if you made an emerald crown that took the helmet slot or belt that took the chest plate slot they offer no protection but could offer you bonuses for example...

    - pointing you to the nearest village (that might be better as an emerald compass)
    - increased chance of refreshing/upgrading a villager after trading
    - increase chance of iron glolem spawning
    - Iron golem follows you (like a sheep does when holding wheat)
    - automatically unlocks the second trade level of villagers without having to trade with them
    - ...

    but emerald weapons, armour and tools are a waste of resources in my opinion.
