History and specificsEdit
When Julian Bashir was thinking about leaving Deep Space 9, Sarina Douglas said that if he wanted to peddle Spican flame gems, mine them or make them into art, she would be with him all the way. (ST - Typhon Pact novel: Plagues of Night)
Spican flame gems are also used in Spican flaming melon. In the year 2376, Quark added three flame gems to every melon served, hoping the guests knew not to eat them. (DS9 - Mission Gamma novel: This Gray Spirit)
