Well, the Eye of Destiny was only what they went there for. Who knows what else they stumbled across* when they actually got in there?

On the other hand, we've seen Toph since that adventure and she wasn't nine feet tall and neckless, so we may presume they didn't find the Ruby of Cyttorak, or at least that she didn't touch it if they did. (And really, would Toph Beifong not touch that if they found it?) That stands to reason, though. One presumes Ulfgerth would be using that, not hoarding it, if he possessed it.

* Or, well, what else Corwin stumbled across. Toph doesn't stumble across things. Very surefooted.
