The shining stones are rocks that can be found on the island. They can be opened to obtain precious resources like opals, iron and copper. Below is a guide on how to find, identify and open the shining stones of Dinkum.


What Shining Stones Look Like

Being able to identify a Shiny Stone will ensure that when you come across one, you know how to pick it up. The shining stones are small brown rocks that are cracked. The cracks are bright yellow, so the stones look like they contain gold.

Once a shiny stone is in your inventory, you will notice it by its bright yellow color.

How to Get Shiny Stones

The shining stones are scattered across the map. Their specific locations cannot be identified, but there are things you can do to help you find them. You will most often get shiny stones while mining. To find shiny stones specifically, focus on hitting rocks and ores.

How to mine in Dinkum

Mining will not only help you find shiny stones, but also other resources the game has to offer. To mine in Dinkum, you will need:

  1. Level 1 mining permit: this license can be purchased from Fletch for 250 permission points and will grant you permission to mine.
  2. Base Pickaxe: the basic pickaxe will be enough to hit rocks and you can upgrade it later; get it from John for 1,200 Dinks.

Getting the resources to get Shiny Stones is relatively affordable. However, keep in mind that you will need to get a lot more Dinks before you can open the stones.

Mining will go much faster if you get a Jackhammer, which costs 100,000 Dinks.

How to Open Shining Stones

You will need a stone crusher costs 10,000 Dinks. You can buy it again from John’s shop.

Once you have both your Shiny Stones and your Stone Grinder, you can place one inside to get the valuable resources you seek.
