Makers of Fine Wands Since 2007
Cedric Diggory's Wand
We are introduced to Cedric Diggory's wand at the Wand-Weighing ceremony prior to the start of the Tri-Wizard Tournament, when Ollivander examines and comments on each wand. Cedric then uses his wand during the tournament, although we see it in active use only during the last task, just before he is murdered by Tom Riddle/Lord Voldemort.
Ash with Unicorn Hair, 12 ½ inches
Ash is sacred to Poseidon and Wodon, and represents sea power. It captures the power of the sea and protects against drowning. It is the Father of Trees, representing Ygdrasill, the World Tree, and is one of the Fairy Triad: Oak, Ash and Thorn. Ash wards off malign influences, protects against unwanted change, and repels and fights off snakes. Guardian spirits residing in Ash absorb negative physical energy, protecting the user from illness. Thus it is used in healing, purification and cleansing. Ash attracts lightning, so does not protect against it. Ash reduces inner conflict and strife. It enhances the user’s intelligence, wit, and knowledge, and promotes curiosity, learning and communication. Its elements are Air, Spirit, and Water. Calendar dates for Ash are February 18 – March 17. In Common With: Ron Weasley by way of his brother Charlie's wand Unicorn Hair promotes strength and virtue in the user. Unicorn Hair fiercely guards the life of the wielder, and brings the bearer good fortune. It aids in healing and neutralizes poisons. Unicorn Hair functions androgynously, working equally well for male and female, and balancing masculine and feminine powers in the user. A wand with Unicorn Hair core is best wielded by those who are pure of heart, and its use tends to clarify the user’s moral vision. In Common With: Ron Weasley, Neville Longbottom, Draco Malfoy
