A jar of lionfish spines

Lionfish have extremely long and separated spines.[1] Crushed into a powder, these spines can be used in healing potions,[2] such as the Wiggenweld Potion.[3] It is also an ingredient of the Herbicide Potion[4] as well as some more complicated ones. The ingredient can be bought from some shops, notably The Apothecary in Diagon Alley.
