What is the quickest way to get Rathalos Rubies?

I'm making a highrank Azure Rathalos armor set, all i have left is the helmet and leggings, and both require Rathalos rubies. So i already know capture and check every shiny, but do the subspieces have better chances to drop them? or ould it be easier just to grind normal Rathalos?

I checked the MHWiki, and apparently the Silver Rathalos' tail has a higher chance of giving you a ruby (5% over the usual 2%). The Azure Rathalos, however, has only a 1% chance, so you should go for the Silver Los or, if you can't farm him easily, normal Los :)
The drop %s are pretty similar though, so you probably won't notice much of a difference.

Hunt high rank Silver Rathalos or G-Rank one with a group. Cut the tail, break his face and capture for best chance. If you'll make him "cry" by luring him into the trap at the right moment, he might drop it as a shiny as well. So there are 3 sources overall: cutting tail, shiny and reward. Sometimes I got two at once (once from carving tail, one from reward) when hunting down HR9 silver los in a group.

another way to get a los to drop a shiny is to flash bomb him when he is flying/hovering above the ground
