This skull-hookah belonged to Gellert Grindelwald, and was made of an aged human skull. When used, it allowed others to experience Grindelwald's visions.[1]


Grindelwald using his skull-hookah

The inscription on the front of the skull included:


Gellert Grindelwald presents a vision at a rally of a muggle war that would occur over a decade later

Gellert Grindelwald used it to foresee the Second World War and present the images in his mind to his followers during his rally in Paris in 1927. His lieutenant, Vinda Rosier, held the hookah for him so he could conjure dark fire in order to separate his followers from his enemies in the Lestrange Mausoleum. However, it was destroyed when Leta Lestrange cast a powerful spell at it to explode it, knocking over Rosier in the process.
