Ruby Rod memory?

A few months ago I was shown a couple of arrays of memory which used
teensy Ruby Rods in place of the standard ferrite doughnuts. An array
consisted of lots of the rods gridded out like core. The array was
sandwitched between two clear, plastic, adhesive sheets.

Why ruby rods over cores? Ruby sounds expensive. What were the benefits?

How do you make teensie ruby rods and who did it?

How common was this type of memory?
