Spice is an orange substance that is only found in the sandy dunes of the planet Arrakis. Spice is the great wealth of the galaxy, for it gives long live to whoever consumes it. It also allows the Spacing Guild to fold space - the main means of space travel. And it allows the Bene Gesserit to have visions of the past and future. Much of the Dune series focusses on the control and production of spice.
