    The achievement description is pretty self-explanatory. However, I will explain more for your understanding.

    You can get this with one villager. You just have to trade with it repeatedly.

    Natural emerald ore can only be found in the extreme hills biome, making it the rarest ore in the game. You will find it easier to start this process by acquiring emeralds from villagers, then using those emeralds to buy other items.

    I find it easier to get a lot of emeralds from librarians, the villagers who wear white clothes. It is easy to mass produce sugar cane, and thus paper or books, which are items that librarians look for. Other villagers like blacksmiths (coal), butchers (meats), and farmers (wheat) are good for trading too.

    If there isn't a village nearby in your world, you can get this with cured zombie villagers too. See my achievement guide on curing a zombie village for more information.

    UPDATE: Start a world with the seed STOCKDR (v. 1.2.0.) to spawn in a large village with many villagers. This will make it easier if you don't have a village in your other worlds.

    SunkenStyxSomeone unlocked this on Xbox One (May 6th, 2019) and WIN10 (May 5th, 2019). However, I still can't get it to unlock on Nintendo Switch. Can anyone confirm if/how they can get it to unlock on any platform?

    DNGRDOOM64I tried doing both direct selling and buying for emeralds and no achievement.
    I tried selling from 0 - 30 emeralds and then some in an alt world and no achievement.

    I've reported this as a bug seeing as the pattern is showing that it is clearly broken.

    KashThePriestSo I’ve been trying this for a week and no luck. With the solution on the new update (maybe this update also patched it?) but again quick trade (left side) didn’t pop the cheevo but manually trading (right side) popped after 30 individual trades, not 30 emeralds (at least it did for me)

    Huge thanks to Itzz Sh0wt1m3 for having a realm up to make this easy
