We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

Ruby is a gem found within the Underground and Cavern layers of a world. They are obtained by breaking special blocks that have noticeable red gemstones embedded in it. They can also be extracted from Silt, Slush, or Desert Fossil by putting them in an Extractinator. Rarely, Rubies can be found in bulk in its own special gemstone cave, or in one that contains all of the other gems as well (besides Amber).

Like all other gems, Rubies can be placed on blocks. They cannot be reverted back into their Stone Block version once mined.
