They should also add emerald tools and weapons and maybe even new ores like rubies and sapphires. :)

I don't think emerald armour is needed, as it is very rare to find (only extreme hills biomes), and is only really used as a currency. It wouldn't be any better than diamond as well, which is easier to find.

Agreed, with hobby-boy.

However it would be nice for Mojang to do an implementation of a greater variety of tools to work towards.
That said, it would need to incorporate new ores into the world generation code which obviously is not as easy as we like to think.

Interesting subject, I'm sure it's in discussion,

I think this is a great idea. Since it is so rare it should be used to make the best armor and tools. Also because emeralds don't have much of a purpose in crafting.

I think that emeralds should have at least a few more uses than villager trading. Possibly in the future they could add emerald payments to enchanting as they are doing with lapis in the new update.
Emerald armour/tools would probably be a waste as Hobby said, due to the fact of it being worth about the same as diamond - and also more rare.

I don't think just adding another set of tools will help much. I'd much rather have more in the direction of tool modification(taking base tools and adding to them), kinda like tinker's construct, but not exactly. this would allow for more personalization for specific needs like clearing an area or mining diamond+Redstone

I think it would be pretty cool. like also if they added emarld pick,axe, and sword would be a really cool update plus we would be able to use emarlds for other things besides making blocks. they would be a lot more useful if that comes in an update in the future

Dont forget that the materials where the current minecraft tools are made from are also used in real life

Wood, stone, iron and diamond tools actually exist, diamond is one of the strongest materials on earth. I doubt Emeralds is a strong material so it would be weird to have it as a tool.
