Name[edit source]

I was playing around and I put them in the crafting table. Before they said emerald but after i put them in the crafting table their name changed diamond. It seems like a bug but does anyone else have this problem? Killrbladez 21:57, 24 May 2012 (UTC)

Diamonds called emeralds in code = false[edit source]

Diamonds are not technically called "emeralds" in Minecraft's original source code as it is when you buy it. They are called something like "ccb" or otherwise, because the code is obfuscated.

The mistake of calling diamonds Emeralds in the code is the people who did Minecraft Coder Pack. If I remember correctly Notch didn't tell us how to de-obfuscate the code nor did he provide an answer key, so for all we know the code he originally made (pre-obfuscation) could have called diamonds "thoseShinyBlueThings". (not that it did, we just don't know for sure) 216.175.102.133 02:15, 1 June 2012 (UTC)

Coincidence?[edit source]

There is a world in the iconic video game Sonic the Hedgehog 2 called 'Emerald Hill Zone', and emeralds are only found naturally in Extreme Hills biomes.

Without a source from a Mojangsta saying it's an intentional homage, yes it is just a coincidence. ;) ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 13:36, 24 February 2013 (UTC))

Why Rubies are gone[edit source]

I bet they got confused with redstone (there red like redstone). But if there is an official reson, contact me. - Ogre Pikmin

Apparently, it is due to Dinnerbone being red-green colorblind, but this seems wrong (changing a red object to a green object to help a person who can't tell the difference is quite strange). 121.127.214.223 07:51, 20 June 2016 (UTC)

This is kind of ancient, but I'll explain my thoughts anyway.
I'm pretty sure it's because it might be difficult to tell the difference from a distance. It would be easy to mix up redstone and ruby from a good few blocks away. Bad for cavers. - MinecraftPhotos4U (talk) 08:23, 20 June 2016 (UTC)

Trivia: Strong resemblance to Legend of Zelda rupees[edit source]

Don't really know how intentional it is, but emerald show a great resemblance to the rupees of the Legend of Zelda franchise:

  • rupees are the currency in loz; emeralds are used for trading in mc;
  • the most common rupees are green; the emeralds are green;
  • the the shapes seem related

Emeralds hard to find[edit source]

When I try and mine for emeralds I never find any emeralds, only gold, diamonds and iron? What are some good mining tips?80.189.26.130 16:20, 27 March 2013 (UTC)

A Stub?[edit source]

why is this page listed as a stub? seems like it has enough content, so... can someone either kill the stub, or tell me why it's listed?

Trivia section?[edit source]

There should be some peculiarities about emeralds, right? I mean, I think if we add a trivia section this article shouldn't be a stub any more. Any ideas? What about "it is the only mineral ore that cannot be used for crafting anything other than a block of itself."? –Preceding unsigned comment was added by 115.241.43.13 (talk) 13:19, 3 March 2014(UTC).

Trivia sections are generally a sign of a substandard article, and should not be added just to pad an article out to some perceived "long enough" length. Trivia should instead either be incorporated properly into the rest of the article - if it is actually noteworthy - or simply omitted.
Also note that an article's length is not the only determiner of whether it's a stub; even very short articles can be considered not a stub if they are well-written and say everything worth saying about their subject. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 17:54, 3 March 2014 (UTC)
In the case of this particular article, I don't know why the stub tag was added, but I do know that this is not a stub. As such, I've removed the tag. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 18:01, 3 March 2014 (UTC)

(Not)Only in Extreme Hills[edit source]

I was on minecraft today, and I saw an emerald while mining. I pressed f3 to see what biome I was in, and it was the plains biome. Was there an update so emeralds spawn in other biomes? Mrchucklenut (talk) 21:13, 20 July 2014 (UTC)mrchucklenutMrchucklenut (talk) 21:13, 20 July 2014 (UTC)

Emeralds are not rare at all...[edit source]

You can say "Emeralds are one of the rarest materials in Minecraft until you found a village."

Reason: Sometimes you can sell REALLY cheap stuff like wheat to villagers, in quantity of 1 emerald. By the way, you can quickly make money (Even the trade was locked you can still trade other stuff to unlock it).

Another Oddball Place[edit source]

I found a couple around a river of Lava in a deep cave that kind of sits on the border between a Desert and a Jungle.

disambiguation[edit source]

A disambiguation for the Emerald is missing. Iwer Sonsch (talk) 11:33, 10 April 2017 (UTC)
