Power to change, positive luck, balance of energy, breaks down social barriers. Ebony is well-known as the most powerful magical wood. Scott Cunningham, trusted writer of over 30 books about magic and the occult, writes about ebony, "Ebony wood is protective and so is used in making amulets. Ebony wands give the magician pure, unadulterated power." The power of ebony is non-discriminating. It is useful for any magical practice and with any element. Macassar ebony differs slightly from the energy of Gaboon ebony, in that it is more centered around emotions and intuition. This wood would be especially useful in the seeking of spiritual knowledge and exploring intuition and emotion. It would not be especially useful for healing. Historically, this wood was used in the handles of Samurai swords.
