Uncut ruby detail.png

An Uncut ruby is a red gem used in Crafting and Fletching. An uncut ruby can be cut by a player with level 34 Crafting by using it with a chisel, which makes the uncut ruby into a ruby and yields 85 Crafting experience.

Uncut rubies can be obtained in several ways. Players can get them randomly while mining ores, as drops from monsters or as a reward from Random events. With level 40 mining and the Shilo Village quest completed, players can mine the gem rocks in Shilo Village. Gem rocks may also appear while playing the Tai Bwo Wannai Cleanup minigame, where players can mine them 3 times. A quick way to get uncut rubies is from wall safe cracking in the Rogues' Den, which requires level 50 Thieving. They can also be obtained by opening a muddy chest located in the Lava Maze. Uncut rubies can also in theory be bought from the Gem trader in Al-Kharid and from Herquin's Gems, the jewel shop in Falador, though they both virtually never have any in stock, as they rely on players to sell them gems. One uncut ruby is obtained from the Misthalin Mystery quest and two are given as a reward for the Troll Romance quest, along with 5 other various uncut gems. Players can also earn an uncut ruby as a reward from the Misthalin Mystery quest.

Players can also use the Fletching skill to cut a ruby into Ruby bolt tips by using a chisel on an already "cut" ruby, requiring level 63 fletching. Cutting a ruby into bolt tips grants the player 6 experience in the fletching skill and gives the player 12 ruby bolt tips, which are used to tip adamant bolts.
