- "Harry uncorked the poison he had taken from Sliughorn’s desk, which was a garish shade of pink, tipped it into his cauldron and lit a fire underneath it.

- —Harry Potter and Ron Weasley having difficulty making the antidote for this poison[src]
On 7 January, 1997, Potions Master Horace Slughorn presented each of his sixth-year Potions students with a phial of this poison so that they could brew an adequate antidote under the principle of Golpalott's Third Law. Harry Potter's very effective solution was a bezoar stone from a goat's stomach, a fact he had learned from Severus Snape's copy of Advanced Potion-Making.
