An unidentified small fossil is a fossil that can be obtained while performing certain activities on Fossil Island:

In addition, after helping reconstruct the Museum Camp, a player can claim 5 unidentified small fossils from Peter, who can be found panning just west of the camp.

They can be traded to the Fossil Collector in exchange for 100 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. All of these items can be obtained by taking a cleaning kit from the wall in the Varrock Museum's cleaning area, or from the crate next to the cleaning benches on Fossil Island.

Cleaning unidentified small fossils will give the player a small fossilised limbs, spine, ribs, pelvis, or skull. A set of these allows the player to place them in a small 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 2,000 experience in any skill above level 20, along with 2 kudos per display.
