A geode is a type of item randomly received while Mining or Woodcutting. Geodes are untradeable and may be shattered to receive one of several items.

Mining[edit | edit source]

A geode is a rare item obtained sometimes when Mining which contains gems or other items. Mining geodes were released with the Mining and Smithing rework and replaced the chance of randomly obtaining a gem while mining. They are stackable with the same type of geode, bankable, and untradeable. By default a player has a 5% chance to get a geode each time they get a piece of ore when mining. Levelling benefits can increase this for core rocks, the base chance of 5% will be used for non-core rocks.

The type of geode you get is based on the level requirement of the rock, for example regular coal yields sedimentary geodes, whilst concentrated coal yields igneous geodes due to their higher level requirement to mine them. When an igneous geode is obtained, there is a base 1% chance that a metamorphic geode is obtained instead.
