As of now Enchanting Tables exclusively use Lapis Lazuli for all enchantments. What if other minerals could be put into an enchanting table, and would affect what enchantments you get?
Lapis Lazuli - Enchantment chances for this mineral would remain the same. Lapis Lazuli is still considered the best enchanting item.
Nether Quartz - enchantments for this mineral would include Blast Protection, Fire Aspect/ Protection, Flame, Thorns, and Smite. To make this mineral less overpowered in enchanting, More quartz will be required to enchant. Maybe 5-10 for an enchant?
Heart of the Sea(or Nautilus Shell)- enchantments for these minerals would include Aqua affinity, Channeling, Depth Strider, Impaling, Lure, Luck of the Sea, Loyalty, Respiration, and Riptide. since most of these are exclusive to fishing rods and tridents, maybe a nautilus shell could be used for those. Enchantments with these would cost one Heart or Shell, since these minerals are so rare.
If any enchantments related to trading are added in the future, then emeralds could be used. These are just some possible ways that other minerals could be used in enchanting, and not a definite list.
This feature would be very useful for players that want to get specific enchantments on their items, and it would also diversify the enchanting experience. This new addition would also be very flexible, and be able to be built upon in future updates that add new enchantments.
