Emerald Bees are one of the bees added by Magic Bees that produce nuggets of gems. In the case of Emerald Bees, they produce Emerald Nuggets, which can be crafted into an Emerald if nine are acquired. Emerald Bees are a member of the Gem Branch.


Emerald Bees produce Honey Combs as is the case with the other members of the Gem Branch. These combs result in Beeswax and Honey Drops when centrifuged.
