This wood has incredibly diverse energy, allowing it to be an all-purpose wood for magickal workings. While containing almost entirely masculine energy, it is also influenced by the power of Venus, bringing a softer, intuitive, feminine energy as well. Spiritual energy is strongest within this wood, followed by the power of water. Water and spirit combined make this wood excellent for any working dealing with change, acts of will, or evocation (this is the wood we use to create our athames). This is also an excellent healing wood. The diversity of the energy in this wood makes it useful for evocation as well as banishment rituals.
Crup Tails are typically only used in wands designed to be used for Care of Magical Creatures. As Crups are considered one of the most faithful familiars a witch or wizard could have, Crup tail wands are often found in the hands of those who prize loyalty. As such, they are almost exclusively Hufflepuff wands.
