Tyrian purple detail.png

Tyrian purple is an Archaeological material that can be obtained through excavating material caches or various excavation sites, requiring level 25 Archaeology, at various dig sites around RuneScape.

Tyrian purple is required to restore various artefacts. As players increase their Archaeology level and user higher tier mattocks, they are able to excavate tyrian purple at quicker rates.

Tyrian purple, like other Archaeology materials, can be stored in the material storage container. An unlimited amount of tyrian purple can be stored in the material storage container.
