A starborn diamond could be found when Mining or on the Squeal of Fortune from 26 April 2013 to 6 May 2013, and on Treasure Hunter from 9 September 2015 to 14 September 2015. Players would be warned one week in advance before its removal from the game. It was an uncommon reward on the Squeal of Fortune or Treasure Hunter. With one, it was possible to make starfire weaponry and armour into starfury weaponry and armour, which provides 250 Mining experience per weapon and 1,500 experience per outfit piece. It is currently not tradeable and was very rare to find while mining (around a 1/10,000 rate when mining). Free to play players could also find it by mining but could not use it. Today, free to play players are able to use starborn diamonds to upgrade armour and weapons, but weapons upgraded on free to play worlds will become unusable members' items. Destroying the starfury weapon and attempting to reclaim from Diango on a free to play world will revert the weapon back to its starfire version, essentially wasting a starborn diamond (although this may be a bug).

Currently the only ways of obtaining them are through Vic the trader or a Portable Trader, who each sell them for 100 credits.
