This is the character
Visually, it looks very similar to a regular colon : - to be honest, I don't really understand why there is a character devoted to it when visually 99% of people would never know the difference. In fact though, used properly, it is the kind of character that could be beneficial to screen reader users - as the synthesizer or screen reader then doesn't need to try and ascertain the context of two dots on top of each other to work out whether it is a colon or a ratio. As we've seen in the case of the time on the Windows lock screen however, if you give people the option to mess something up....
Here's a page with all the characteristics of the ratio symbol: http://www.fileformat.info/info/unicode/char/2236/index.htm
