Block of Emerald
dec: 133 hex: 85 bin: 10000101
Blocks of Emerald (also known as emerald blocks) are decorative mineral blocks that do not naturally generate in maps. Although their primary usage is decoration, they can also be used to store emeralds in a compact fashion and are one of the four mineral blocks that can be used in the construction of beacon pyramids. Crafting a 3x3 square of emeralds in a crafting table produces a single emerald block. Emeralds can be reacquired by placing the emerald blocks into a crafting grid.

- Jeb removed the old chest textures in terrain.png to make room for the Block of Emerald next to the other icons of items, causing the locked chest to have the blank, purple "texture" on its sides and the top texture of a Block of Emerald.
- Emerald blocks were the only storage block to resemble the item they are made from, until the implementation of coal blocks.
