This is a beautiful wand made from the branch of a Magnolia tree that grows against the wall of my house. It has glossy evergreen leaves and huge flat white flowers with a strong sweet scent. We had to remove a branch to make room for scaffolding while the stonework of the walls was being repointed, and as it is the only wood of this type I have, as you can imagine it's running out quite fast!
This wand is slender and has a delicate feel. There is absolutely nothing harsh about it, the surface of the wood is silky smooth and the iridescence is overlaid with a slight greyish tint, as if to play down it's beauty. This dove grey colour is not simply on the surface, as other woods have a superficial overlay of a darker colour, but actually is the colour of the wood right the way through, as can be seen at either end. There are several small leaf scars, showing as little dark dots, but nothing really to detract from the subtle interplay of neutral colours washing over the wood. I don't think the photos really capture the almost ephemeral and otherworldly beauty.
This wand seems to have a ladylike delicacy and refinement that are exceptionally feminine, as well as a kind of timidity, a breathlessness, that's constantly poised on the edge of flight. There's a wildness akin to a fawn or a hare, a kind of fluttering quality just on the edge of your consciousness that's graceful and sweet but threatens to flee if you observe it too closely. I think it would probably settle better with it's rightful owner, and I imagine that it would be the very essence of loyalty once a bond had been formed. I believe it would best suit a fairly young woman, someone who can respond sympathetically to it's sylphlike qualities, but who also has enough discipline and common sense to stay well grounded and not get too caught up in it's innate "airy-fairyness".
Magnolia is said to bring fidelity in love.
