This wand belonged to the 17th century witch Gormlaith Gaunt. She purchased it from Ollivanders in around 1620, after her original wand — a most ancient family heirloom who had originally belonged to Salazar Slytherin — was stolen by her niece and ward Isolt Sayre.[1]

Gormlaith considered the wand inferior to her family wand. It had a dragon heartstring core.[1]

The wand was destroyed when a poisonous arrow shot by William the Pukwudgie reacted with the Dark spells Gormlaith had cast on herself for protection and invincibility: when the witch died, the wand fell to the ground and burst, leaving just a broken stick and a charred dragon heartstring.[1]
