The Extractinator is an item added in the 1.2 update. It turns Silt, Slush, and desert fossil into more valuable items like Ores, Coins, Gemstones, or even Amber or an Amber Mosquito (which are unavailable in any other way). As of the 1.3 update you can now use Desert Fossils with the Extractinator to also have a chance of getting Sturdy Fossils.
