The Block of Ruby was a material block planned to be added to the game in Java Edition 1.3.1; however, they were replaced by emeralds because of developer Nathan Adams being red-green colorblind, although some say that it was because Notch found ruby ore looking to much like redstone ore.
Blocks of ruby could be crafted by placing 9 rubies within a Crafting Table. A block of ruby could besplit back into 9 rubies by placing the block in a crafting table making them useful as storage blocks.
