Wood: Tulipwood - Brown Ebony
Tropical Hardwood: Tulipwood & Brown Ebony
Length: 15 1/4"
Approximate Weight: 2.5 oz
Crafted: July 14, 2015
The beauty of this wand is in the detail of the design and the color of the wood. The tulipwood and brown ebony are all natural; no dye or stain has been added. Both woods are hard and dense.
This wand is a unique quality handcrafted work of art. First I use a router on the handle to get the deep groves before shaping it on the wood lathe. A tenon is made on the shaft of the wand and the handle is epoxy glued to it after being made separately on the wood lathe. I sanded the wand super smooth on the lathe to 1000 grit. Then the wand was finished with shellac and buffed with natural waxes.

Tulipwood is part of the rosewood family. It carries with it many of the traits of other rosewoods, with a few unique traits as well. A very powerful feminine energy radiates from this wood. It would be extraordinary if used in moon magic, and anything having to do with creativity, intuitions, and beauty, and natural cycles. This would be an excellent wood for divination. The primary element of this wood is water. Water usually brings with it a calm and peaceful effect. However, the energy of this wood contains the full spectrum of water energy, both peaceful and destructive. It is as though the very energy of the Goddess rests within the wood; beautiful and serene, yet powerful and proud. The wood carries an overall positive energy, and also may be used to bring about affluence and wealth. One of the most powerful woods we have ever encountered, with a very diverse and potent energy.

Positive luck, balance of energy, 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. It is especially useful in spells dealing with the home, love, and Venus.
