How To Make Emerald In Minecraft
Everything you need to make Emerald
Emerald is the rarest mineral in Minecraft, just before Netherite. They only spawn one ore per vein and you can only find them in the Mountain biome. Although it’s rare, the only main usage of Emerald is to trade with Villagers.
- 1x Emerald Ore OR 1x Block of Emerald
How to craft Emerald in Minecraft
#1 Get Emerald by trading with Villagers
This is by far the most efficient and easiest way to get Emerald with a large quantity. The only concern is you need to find a Village, breed them, and make a whole trading system. When you’re done, you can basically trade anything for Emerald! From sticks, glass, iron, gold, crops, and even more!
#2 Collect 1x Emerald Ore
Emerald can only be found in the Mountain biome and the higher you go, the higher chance you can find Emerald Ores. Remember to use at least an Iron Pickaxe in order to mine Emerald Ore.
Without Silk Touch enchantment, Emerald Ore will drop 1x Emerald.
With Silk Touch, you will receive 1x Emerald Ore.
#3 Finish off crafting an Emerald
If you have Emerald Ore in your inventory, simply place it down, and break it with your non Silk Touch pickaxe.
You can also put Emerald Ore in the Furnace to smell it to get 1x Emerald.
If you have Block of Emerald, just put it in the crafting grid to get 9x Emeralds.
Another way you can get Emerald straightaway is by looting chests in generated structures like Buried treasure, Desert temple, End city, Igloo, Jungle temple, Shipwreck, and Village. They normally give 1-8x Emerald.
What is the give command to get an Emerald?
The command to give yourself an Emerald is: /give @p emerald 1
With Emerald, you can trade for more materials with Villagers, or make a full-size Beacon with only Block of Emerald.
