"Harry started unwrapping the shopping. Apart from The Standard Book of Spells, Grade 4, by Miranda Goshawk, he had a handful of new quills, a dozen rolls of parchment, and refills for his potion-making kit — he had been running low on spine of lionfish and essence of belladonna."
—Harry Potter examines his school supplies[src]

Spine of Lionfish[1] is the long and separated vertebrae of the Lionfish.[2] These spines are either used whole, or crushed into a powder. They can be used in the brewing of healing potions,[3] such as the Wiggenweld Potion,[1] and is also an ingredient of the Herbicide Potion.[3] The ingredient can be bought from some shops, notably The Apothecary in Diagon Alley, at 2 Galleons for 16 bottles.[3]
