Coleman's Book Of Wands
A simple book summarizing every general topic of wands. Including Cores, Woods, History, Famous Witch's and Wizard's Wands, Wandlore, and much much more!
The core of a wand is a magical substance placed within the length of wood selected for the wandcrafting process. They are generally parts extracted from some type of Magical Being, Beast, or Creature. The materials used for wand cores can vary widely, even though certain wandmakers may prefer to use only a certain few materials. Wand cores are from magical beings, beasts, or creatures for one reason, their magical properties enhance our abilities enough to cause us to gain more control and power over them. But the core can not alone give you the channeling ability, the wood used gives you the control of the magical substance of your core and your magic combined.
