Ebony is a dense, jet-black wand wood, with an impressive appearance and reputation. Its black colour is a constant reminder of death. Old superstitions holding Ebony wands to be unlucky have sprung up over the last two hundred years, however I maintain these rumours to be baseless. They perform magic of subtlety and strength. Ebony is highly suited to combative magic, and to Transfiguration. They are happiest in the hands of those with the courage to be themselves. They are found to be possessed by the non-conformist, the highly individual and those who are comfortable with the status of outsider. In my experience the Ebony wand’s perfect match is one who will hold fast to his or her belief; no matter what the external pressure, they choose driven masters, and will not be swayed lightly from their purpose.
