Advanced data
Object ID11387

Granite rocks are a type of rock found in the Desert Quarry south of the Bandit Camp, as well as the Necropolis mine in the Kharidian Desert. In the quarry, as in the desert, desert heat will continually reduce the player's Hitpoints unless the player has waterskins in inventory, or is wearing the Desert amulet 4. Prior to January 2007, no water was required in the quarry. Granite is mainly used for fast Mining training. There are three types of granite, 500g, 2 kg, and 5 kg, all rising in price respectively. Using a chisel, granite can be chiselled into smaller chunks, relative to their size, so you'll get ten 500g pieces of granite with one 5 kg piece.

Mining granite[edit | edit source]

Granite respawns quickly, so that a player can mine continuously at a group of only 3-4 rocks.

When granite is mined, the player randomly receives one of the three sizes of granite blocks. When wearing Varrock armour and the armour effect activates, the size of the second block of granite will be the same as the first block.

There is no way that the player can influence which block size is mined. However, by using a chisel, the player can carve the larger blocks into 500g ones: four 500g blocks from 2 kg, and ten from 5 kg (first by cutting the 5 kg block into two 2 kg and two 500g blocks, and then cutting the 2 kg blocks).

Types of granite[edit | edit source]

A player must have Mining level of 45 or greater to mine granite, which yields the following experience shown below depending on the size the granite block mined.
