Granite is a rock that can only be mined from granite rocks at the Western desert mining site south of the Bandit Camp in the Kharidian Desert. In this quarry, as elsewhere in the desert, desert heat will continually reduce the player's Hitpoints unless the player has waterskins in inventory or is wearing the Desert amulet 4. Prior to January 2007, no water was required in the quarry.

A player must have Mining level of 45 or greater to mine granite, which yields the following experience shown below depending on the size the granite block mined.

Size XP Examine text
Granite (500g) 500g 50 A tiny chunk of granite.
Granite 2kg 2 kg 60 A small chunk of granite.
Granite 5kg 5 kg 75 A medium-sized chunk of granite.

Mining granite is the best experience for people trying to achieve 99 Mining, reaching as high as 75,000 experience per hour. It can be mined alongside Sandstone for an increased experience rate by decreasing the amount you have to move to mine the rocks. It is recommended to have a high Mining level, bring many waterskins and 100 coins for rug traveling to the Bandit Camp (or a Camulet), and have enough space to drop granite, or using a Desert amulet 4 for infinite water. Alternatively, using the Humidify spell can extend your trips by filling waterskins without having to leave the quarry.
