  • The Midden
  • Shriekwind Bastion
  • Can be found on dead giants.
  • Around Orphan Rock
  • Can also be found in random loot.
    • Several more can be found in certain containers with the Prowler's Profit perk.
  • Can be mined from Ruby Geodes added by Dragonborn.
    • Several Ruby Geodes can be found in the spider nest underneath Fort Frostmoth. Note that although the spiders can be easily dislodged even by a low level player who takes them out one by one by sneaking with a bow, the Ash Spawns that infest the fort are formidable opponents, and thus lower level players are advised to stay away from them and the geodes.
