Numulite detail.png

Numulites are a form of currency used on Fossil Island. They are obtained from doing just about anything on Fossil Island, such as killing monsters, chopping sulliusceps, tracking herbiboars, digging the soil east of the Museum Camp, mining in the Volcanic Mine, and looting chests and clams in the mermaid's domain. They can also be obtained by trading fossils with the Fossil Collector. An equipped ring of wealth will automatically pick up numulite drops from killed monsters if its coin-collection feature is enabled.

The numulite is the item Falo requires players to show him when he sings about: They come from some time ago, from a land unto the east. Fossilised they have become, this small and gentle beast.
