The Block of Ruby was a material block planned to be added to the game in Java Edition 1.3.1; however, rubies were replaced by emeralds because of developer Nathan Adams being red-green colorblind, although some say that it was because Notch found ruby ore to look too much like redstone ore.

Crafting

Blocks of ruby could be crafted by placing 9 rubies within a Crafting Table. A block of ruby could be split back into 9 rubies by placing the block in a crafting table making them useful as storage blocks.
