Valuable Components are no longer found in Diablo III.
Prior to their removal, they were the white quality material, created by salvaging Inferno quality items, or upgraded from Reusable Parts. All normal quality materials were removed late in the beta test, when the interface and crafting systems were overhauled and the Nephalem Cube was removed from the game.
