Luminite can be mined in a few places, but one of the best is in the Dwarven luminite mine underneath Falador. It's recommended to have at least 15 dungeoneering as this allows you to enter the mysterious entrance close by into the Dwarven Mine resource dungeon where you will find a bank deposit box. This drastically decreases the time required to bank. Carrying an adamant ore box or better allows the player to hold more ores before needing to bank. The output is calculated having full stamina at all times. Sedimentary geodes will also be received while mining and they can later be opened to retrieve spirit shards and different gems. Wearing an amulet of glory increases the chance of receiving geodes by 1%. The player should use the best pickaxe possible as it will grant more ores per hour. Here you find a table over estimated profit per hour with different mining levels and pickaxes.

For a close approximation of ore mined per hour (of pure mining) based on your levels and gear see the mining rate calculator.
