Wikipedia article

This article is about an older version of DF.

Ruby is a valuable red gem found in small clusters within bauxite. A given cluster may also contain a single star ruby. Aside from the colour, rubies are exactly identical to sapphires, including the value and physical characteristics (this implies that rubies are not magma-safe, melting at 11500 °U ). Rubies are also exactly identical to star rubies aside from the location and value.

In Real Life[edit]

"Ruby" is a type of red corundum (Aluminum Oxide: Al2O3); any colored corundum besides red is called a sapphire. Unlike in-game, rubies do not occur within bauxite in real life.
