Starlight ore was an ore obtained through Mining and the Squeal of Fortune from 26 April 2013 to 6 May 2013. It appeared in quantities of 906 - 1100 ores as a "common" reward in the Squeal of Fortune that has a set coin convert value of 500 regardless of the amount. It has recently been discontinued.
It was a component for forging starfire weapons. To forge a starfire weapon 10,000 starlight ores and starfire sword, bow, or staff blueprints were required. Starfire weapons were in turn needed to create starfury weaponry. The player was able to speak to Ivar of the Artisan's Workshop to find out more about creating starfire and starfury weaponry.
Starlight ore could be obtained from mining any ore, with higher level ores producing larger amounts. The amount of Starlight ore received while mining ranged from 20 - 51. Starlight ore could also be received when mining in the Lava Flow Mine. The most efficient way to collect the ore without the use of Squeal of Fortune was by accessing the Living Rock Caverns and mining Concentrated gold rocks, where decent amounts could be found within a short period of time.
Players were able to exchange starlight ore for Mining or Smithing experience through Ivar. Each ore yielded varied experience which depended upon the player's Mining or Smithing level. Each ore gave 5 mining exp. If a player's Smithing level was 80+ a total of 5 experience will be received per ore. There was a 20,000 limit to the amount of ore which could be exchanged per day to Ivar.
Players are no longer able to retrieve Starlight Ore since 6 May 2013. Starlight ore disappeared from players' banks on 20 May 2013, after a 1 week notice warning the players.
Starlight ore could only be traded from player to player; it was not sold via the Grand Exchange.
