Elder wand wood

The rarest of woods, Elder wand wood had a reputation for being deeply unlucky. Although it took the most remarkable wizard to be able to use and keep an Elder wand, when a match took place, it was clear that the person was marked for great things. One Elder wood wand in particular was well known for its superlative power - one third of the fabled Deathly Hallows - the Elder Wand with a Thestral hair core was the most powerful wand ever to have existed.
