An unidentified medium fossil is a fossil that can be obtained while performing activities on Fossil Island, including:

They can be traded to the Fossil Collector in exchange for 200 numulites.

Cleaning[edit | edit source]

Before players can clean fossils, they must build the cleaning bench east of the Museum Camp using five planks, five nails and a hammer, granting 100 Construction experience. Alternatively, players can use the specimen table in the Varrock Museum.

To clean fossils, players must use the unidentified fossil on the fossil cleaning bench (or specimen table) while wearing leather boots and leather gloves and in possession of a trowel, rock pick and specimen brush.

Cleaning unidentified medium fossils will give the player a medium fossilised limbs, spine, ribs, pelvis, or skull. A set of these allows the player to place them in a medium display in the Varrock Museum's paleontology exhibit, located at the bottom floor of the museum, below the natural history exhibit. Doing so will give an antique lamp that gives 3,500 experience in any skill of level 30 or above, along with 2 kudos per display.
