A Dig Site pendant is a Ruby necklace that has been enchanted using the Enchant Level 3 Jewellery spell. It requires the completion of The Dig Site quest to make or use. This item cannot be sold at the Grand Exchange.
Unlike most gold jewellery, this necklace cannot be enchanted until the spell has been learned from one of the archaeologists cleaning finds in the museum. To learn how to enchant a Ruby necklace, a player must first participate in cleaning uncleaned finds until a Clean necklace is found in the sample.
Finding a clean necklace is somewhat rare and may take a while (expect to clean between 10 and 100 samples in order to get the necklace, although sometimes it can take as many as 500 samples). Players must then talk to one of the archaeologists cleaning finds in the museum. They will then teach the player how to enchant the necklace to make a Dig Site pendant.
When enchanted, the pendant can be used to teleport to 3 locations:
The number of charges on an individual pendant is suffixed to the item's name. For example, an unused pendant is named "Dig Site pendant (5)". When all five teleports have been used, the pendant will crumble away. Players could cast High Level Alchemy on it when only 1 charge is left to minimise costs.
It currently costs 560.4 coins for each teleport, assuming a staff of fire or equivalent is used for the enchantment.
This pendant is very useful for players wishing to quickly swap their prayers to Ancient Curses (after completing The Temple at Senntisten), as it allows quick access to the temple, while being easy to replace and mass-produce. It is also useful for mining dark animica, as it teleports the player relatively near the entrance to the empty throne room mine, depending on which teleport option is chosen.
The pendant is also used in the medium Varrock Task Return to Senntisten.
The pendant can be compacted into a Dig Site pendant (c) which can hold up to 100 charges using a teleportation compactor. 500 charges-worth of pendants (100 full pendants or any combination of charges and compacted pendants that sum to 500 total charges) can be added to a passage of the abyss to add the teleport locations and change the cost to Fortunate components instead of enchanted ruby amulets.
