The sunbeam crown was one of the rewards for completing the Holly portion of the 2011 Easter event. This crown is a replica of the one worn by the Queen of Sunrise herself. Its function is similar to that of the Icicle crown - it will give information on evil trees (see below). This item can be stored in a toy box in your player-owned house. When you lose or destroy the crowns, they can be reobtained from Diango with their previous charges still remaining.

Players were asked to fight an evil tree to signify the handover of the Year, but things took a turn for the worse when the ritual turned out to be ineffective. Both free players and members were rewarded with a sunbeam crown and the Invoke Spring emote. The crown still allows you to contact the Queen of Sunrise when worn, despite the event being discontinued. She gives information on the time, location and tree type for evil trees, as well as giving the option to teleport players to fully grown trees or whilst the sapling is growing. Its ability to be used anywhere, give the type of evil tree growing/grown and to teleport whilst the sapling is growing makes it more useful in finding an evil tree than using a spirit tree. It was originally said by Jagex that these functions would be removed in the week commencing 31 May, but this was not the case, and these functions still exist.

A teleport expends one charge from the crown. Each crown has two charges by default and can hold a maximum of 30 charges. If a player killed an evil holly tree during the event, the crown gained two more charges. The crown can be used to teleport 30 times before it becomes ineffective.

The crown will still give information about the type of sapling or evil tree currently growing on the world when the crown is empty of charges.

During the event, 2 charges would take a total of 10 minutes to gain – 3 minutes for the tree to grow, and 7 minutes for the tree to fall. So to get an extra 28 charges (with the 2 you received at the beginning), it would have taken 4 hours and 40 minutes. Only one interaction was needed with an evil tree (eg, chopping once, or lighting one fire) to gain charges from the tree. This allowed you to gain charges for both crowns simultaneously.
