I think I would make this a 'supernaturally' occurring crystal formation. As it absorbed mana, the amethyst crystals would form and divide. They could be carefully removed and used as manastones once removed, but not while attached to the central spike. The central spike would either have to be ritually planted back into a ley line intersection, or maybe it was already 'harvested', leaving the bearer with a mass of available manastones, but no further ones to develop. That may seem like killing the goose that laid the golden eggs, but if the mana blossom was in an inaccessible (or too freely accessible) space, it might have been better to harvest it than risk losing it entirely.
