Powermining[edit source]

To avoid water use, would taking just a pickaxe, dying, and using House Teleport to get to the desert be feasable? JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 19:41, 18 January 2007 (UTC)

I thought that the Quarry was shielded from the desert effect? Chaoticar 20:12, 18 January 2007 (UTC)

No, the quarry isn't shielded from the desert heat. Jdogy15

Misc Stuff[edit source]

Can you use a chisel or something with a larger piece of granite, to get smaller pieces? Feel free to post on my talk page if you have any info, if you could, thanks! --Jimfromtx 02:47, 13 June 2008 (UTC)

From today, I'm editing it now.tobylaneTalk 16:51, 9 September 2008 (UTC)

Do you get any xp for chiseling granite into smaller pieces? --nekobawt 23:29, 11 September 2008 (UTC)

Nope, sadly not. But it also never fails. --Jimfromtx 22:35, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

Uh oh![edit source]

This suff is getting really unpopular cos of its value. i suspect the market for granite is gonna crash due to people lookin for a quick buck. The granite mine has got really crowded. :(

WOW! I sure am stupid[edit source]

I'm so angry right now. My friend told me to mine Granite because it was good money, so I mined 48 peices and broke them into 480 peices just so picky players would have less of a hard time using it. Now if I'm not mistaken granite lobsters are a somewhat popular familiar, I see them in the fishing guild, Catherby, and similar areas. As well I've been told that infusing Granite Lobster pouches is quite fast powerleveling for higher level summoners. Well, the 480 chunks have been in the G.E. for exactly 29 hours now, and not a single one has sold. Is money making now completely nerfed or something?--Verac's helm.png Lord Rapter 21:19, 15 September 2008 (UTC)

No, selling 500g granite blocks is what your friend meant, not making pouches into Granite lobster pouches. Granite lobster pouches do sell however given a day or two. --Da wabbit is dead... 02:16, February 5, 2010 (UTC)

Contradiction[edit source]

This article contradicts the Granite Lobster article which only lists 500g: "a recent update allowed any size granite to be used for the pouches." 2kgs not buying so I can't test it myself tonight. Perhaps the author meant that 5kg can't be used, but splitting it can turn it in to a usable component. Or perhaps the granite lobster article is wrong and all sizes can be used, but at a significantly larger loss. 09:10, December 19, 2013 (UTC)

Gems?[edit source]

Can you get gems from mining this? Puretppc (talk) 04:50, October 13, 2014 (UTC)
