Shattered Core was a Legendary Crafting Material in Diablo III. It requires a Character Level of 1 to use, is account bound, and may be stacked up to 1000 times. It was required for the crafting of the Devastator legendary mace. As of patch 2.0.6., it no longer drops, and existing Cores may be sold for 50,000 Gold.

The item only dropped from unique Sand Dwellers:

"This is the life force used by the Vizjerei to control the demons of the sand. That control ended with the deaths of their masters, but the mystical energy remained inside the monsters, ready to be exploited by those who knew how. Of course, one must kill the demons first to access this power, but every great endeavor comes with risks..." — Deckard Cain
