Numulite detail.png

Numulites are a form of currency used on Fossil Island. They are obtained from doing just about anything on Fossil Island, such as chopping sulliusceps, tracking herbiboars, using a trowel on the soils east of the Museum Camp, and opening chests and clams in the Mermaid's domain. They can also be obtained by trading fossils with the Fossil Collector. An equipped ring of wealth will automatically pick up numulite drops from killed monsters.
