Stardust detail.png

Stardust can be mined during the Shooting Star Distractions and Diversions activity. Shooting stars randomly land anywhere on Gielinor approximately once every two hours.

Players can help identify the general area where it will land (Asgarnia, Misthalin, etc.) by using a Telescope in a Player-owned house. Once they have mined a crashed star down to its core, they can exchange up to 200 stardust with the Star sprite once daily.

The amount of experience per stardust mined varies by the current level of the crashed star.


200 stardust can be exchanged with the Star sprite in the core of the Shooting Star to be rewarded with:

Reward Grand Exchange
market value
50,002 coins Not sold
152 Cosmic runes 62,624
52 Astral runes 21,580
20 Gold stone spirits Expression error: Unexpected < operator.
Total Expression error: Unexpected < operator.

Additionally, players will also be rewarded with a chance to mine 2 ores at once from any rock for a 15-minute period. This effect stacks with that of Varrock armour. This has no effect on mining essence.

The same items are received but in lesser amounts if less than 200 stardust is exchanged. While stardust can be banked, it is not possible to have more than 200 at one time.

If the Star sprite despawns before exchanging the dust players must wait until they find another sprite to exchange the dust with.
