Spectralite can be purchased from the shop at Trial Isle for 10,000 gold each or from the casino at Puerto Valor for 200,000 tokens during the postgame. After turning in 110 Mini medals to Maxime Médaillé at L'Académie de Notre Maitre des Médailles, spectralite can be received by exchanging three mini medals each. It can also be dropped by Mothertoads, Franticores, Crushtaceans, Labradrakes, Noble dragons, and A3G15s, along with Vicious bobongas and Vicious king crabs. It can be picked up from a singular sparkly spot in the Fierce Forest. One spectralite can be received from Derk after rescuing him from the Malicious Hades condor at Cobblestone Tor in the postgame.

  • In the original Japanese version, spectralite is named after alexandrite, a variety of the gemstone chrysoberyl that displays different colours depending on the ambient lighting. It was first discovered in the Ural Mountains of Russia in the 19th century and named after grand duke Alexander Nikolaevich, who would go on to become Emperor Alexander II. Alexandrite is one of the gemstones for the month of June.
