Don't hink too hard about there monitary situation in Equestria, a cherry cost two whole bits, while an entire bushel of apples only cost three.. or maybe that's just because Applejack is bad at math so she doesn't charge enough..

This episode was a goldmine for reaction images.

perhaps rubys are worth far more than emeralds? Not that I am an Equestrian geologist or anything

So Spike pretty much eats thousands of bits worth of gems?

no, i think that these gems devalue as they get larger. after all, the small one payed for an industrial hairdryer, but a medium one only paid for some train tickets.

The regular currency (in equestria) is bits, not gems. Instead of getting the bits to go out and buy gems, he's just accepting gems as payment like how you can pay a kid a cookie to clean his room or something.

The gem had enough value to buy a massive piece of equipment. It doesn't matter if it's currency or not. Gold bars aren't legal currency, yet they hold a high value.

Spike does not eat currency. Spike eats gems. Gems are harvested. They are not a part of the economy other than merchandise. It's just like with regular food, except that Spike is the only one who can process it. Food has it's own worth and some foodstuffs are more valuable than others. That ruby must have been worth a lot, and so it could have either been sold to someone who desires gems (food isn't the only worth they have, they are also cosmetic) where the money was then used to buy the industrial hairdryer, or traded directly to the seller of the dryer where they saw the ruby as being adequate payment.

There's nothing more to it than that Spike has an expensive diet (and that may not even be a regular part of his diet). They may have managed to get a good deal for the industrial sized pet hairdryer so it may not have been expensive as you think.

There are 2 explanations for this:
1. Rarity gem is a ******* pigeon blood ruby. Those are really expensive little ***** that cost way more than an industrial sized hair dryer. Her gem, also, is the most expensive of the bunch, even though the green one is bigger. Spike probably never noticed this.

2. Hair dryers are cheap, because they aren't needed in the MLP world. At least half the population (pegasi and unicorns who know how) can do the same thing as dryers, so demand is low, and as a result, prices are too.
