Runite bars are used in the Smithing skill to smith various runite weaponry and armour. At level 85 Smithing, players can smelt a runite bar by using runite ore and 8 pieces of coal with a furnace, granting 50 Smithing experience for smelting and 75 Smithing experience for smithing.
For free-to-play, apart from smithing, Bryophyta is the only way of obtaining runite bars.
Three of them can be obtained occasionally when opening the crystal chest.

They were described in the runescape books as being incredibly hard to find and takes the most skilled smiths to turn into items. They were implied in the books to only be found at the lava maze. We need an updated to osrs lore runescape book that involves runite bars.
