They are mined with the highest frequency between layers 5 and 28 under the Extreme Hills Biome in Minecraft Versions 1.3.1 and beyond. They are slightly more rare than Diamonds on any given level but they can be found in a wider vertical range. The ideal level for strip mining for Emeralds and Diamonds at the same time is when your feet are at level 11 and eyes at level 12. But watch out there is a lot of Lava just below those levels. Happy Mining!

I found mine at the top of bedrock level. I'm not sure if it really is supposed to be right there, but I'm lucky still because I found one, and seriously, I wasted 30 minutes of my time mining for only one emerald.

You can find them in ravines or if you mine for a long time for they are the rarest block in minecraft.

Actually, Emerald Ore Blocks are not the rarest block in Minecraft.

Go to a large hills or jungle biome, and then strip mine on level 5.

There are three ways you can find emeralds:
1. By trading various items to villagers,
2. Mining in extreme hills biomes, or
3. Finding them in stronghold and abandoned mineshaft chests.

Hope this helps ;-)

They are about 10 to 25 blocks below you if you are in a jungle biome, extreme hills biome. They are also in temples, sometimes villages will have them and strongholds. You will most likely find them in a extreme hills biome though.

You can also get them from trading with villagers.
