Ruby Ore is an ore added by the GEMS! idea pack. It has the rarity of Gold Ore, making it hard to obtain. However, unlike Gold Ore, it drops 1 Ruby, a tough tool- and armor-making material. Ruby Ore can also be obtained by mining it with Silk Touch. It requires an Iron Pickaxe to drop anything, just like its counterpart, Sapphire Ore.
How to obtain
- Mine with an Iron Pickaxe or higher enchanted with Silk Touch
- In real life, rubies actually are counterparts of sapphire: they are both forms of corundum.
