The old symbol is obtained from the Varrock Museum activity by cleaning uncleaned finds. When found the player should return it to display case 36 (ground floor, middle case, second row from the basement stairs). They are then rewarded with 10 kudos. Players cannot string this symbol with a ball of wool, and it has no use except as part of the miniquest.
Thought to be an altar decoration, possibly celebrating the beginning of the 4th Age when Saranthium was at its most vibrant. Lovingly crafted in silver and sapphire, it is still in good condition.
