If you are a member, the fastest location is the Magician's Guild in Yanille. If you are only free to play, the fastest location is Varrock.

How is Yanille faster? Is it closer to a bank? I'm guessing he's a member since he's talking about "pure" essence. – uncle brad Jan 26 '11 at 2:58
Much closer. The front door of the guild and the front door of the bank basically face each other. The fastest location of anything in RuneScape is the location of that thing that is closest to a bank. – au revoir Jan 26 '11 at 3:02
Note that this requires level 66 Magic to enter. You can also get 100/150 noted pure essence per day from Wizard Cromperty for completing the Ardougne medium/hard achievement diary or tasks. – Chase Sandmann Oct 6 '15 at 21:47
I think OP would have to be a member … I haven’t played in I guess a couple of years, but isn’t pure essence only mineable by members? The wiki says that’s still the case. – Tom Zych Jan 23 at 11:37

The Grand Exchange may be your fastest route if your mining level isn't very high and you have another way to make money quickly.
