In game description:

Rubies are a rare resource which allows you to increase all aspects of your production. Accumulating them will unlock new upgrades and trophies, providing both a permanent passive bonus and the ability to spend them to purchase new perks.

Rubies persist through Abdications and Reincarnations.

Prior to "The Secrets of the Ancients" expansion, Rubies were only available in the shop. Since then, Rubies can also be found for free by excavating.

Along with coins, Faction coins and gems, Rubies are another kind of currency. They enable you to buy special items that cannot be bought otherwise.

Getting Rubies

You can either buy Rubies in the shop, find free Rubies at Events, or by excavating.

You can buy an unlimited number of Rubies, or you can excavate for them but they get progressively harder to find.

Ruby Excavation Count and Cost
Ruby E290 Easter Ascension Excavation Coins Gems

The formula for the number of excavations required for each ruby is 25n(n+1), where n is the number of rubies.

Finding the 1st, 10th, 25th and 50th ruby rewards a trophy.

Spending Rubies

Rubies enable you to buy:

Excavation Resets : Costs 1 Ruby - 1-2999, 2 Rubies 3000-5999, 3 Rubies 6000-8999, 4 Rubies 9000-11999, 5 Rubies 12000-14999.

Note: The counter is reset, but you will not find rubies again.

Event items (such as snowballs during the Christmas event)

Ruby Power Upgrade

Finding 1 Ruby will unlock the Ruby power upgrade which unlocks The Power of Rubies.

Each Ruby enables you to purchase one of the Ruby powers listed below:

Ruby power bonus will also increase by Tier based on all-time amounts of Rubies collected. See Ruby Upgrades for more details.
