Note that having a higher Mining Fortune stat will increase the amount of Ruby Gemstones you acquire per mined block. You can boost this stat with items, potions, and other bonuses.

Step 2: Crafting Ruby Crystals

Now that you’ve mined some Ruby Gemstones, it’s time to craft them into Ruby Crystals. You’ll need 160 Fine Ruby Gemstones, which can be crafted by combining lower-quality Ruby Gemstones. Here’s how to craft Ruby Crystals:

  1. Combine four Flawed Ruby Gemstones to craft one Fine Ruby Gemstone:
  2.             4 Flawed Ruby Gemstones → 1 Fine Ruby Gemstone

  3. Once you have 160 Fine Ruby Gemstones, craft them into a Ruby Crystal:
  4.             160 Fine Ruby Gemstones → 1 Ruby Crystal
