Wood Type: Purpleheart
Wand Size: 13 inches
Wand Core: Demiguise hair
A spiritual wood, purpleheart is excellent for use in
divination magic. It also enhances energy dealing
with creativity and knowledge. One of the best
woods when dealing with spiritual healing and
health issues, purpleheart would be especially
useful in eradicating the negative energies that
create strife in the home.
Demiguise hairs were long considered to not have enough oomph to make a proper wand, but with the advent of multiple cores they have gained favor for their strength in Transfiguration and the subtle arts. When combined with a stronger wand core they make potent wands, however, on their own they can be rather one-dimensional and difficult to use for anything but Transfiguration. They have found favor in students of all Houses, although they may be slightly rarer among the open Hufflepuffs.
