'''Gubraithian Fire''' (or '''Everlasting Fire''') is fire enchanted to burn forever. The enchantment seems to be an advanced-level of [[magic]], as not many [[Wizardkind|wizards]] are capable of doing it. Because of that, they are highly prized and presumably kept as exotic treasures. [[Rubeus Hagrid]] and [[Olympe Maxime|Madame Maxime]] gave a branch burning of this particular Magic-Fire to the [[Gurg]] of the [[Giant]]s as a gift and proof of good faith.

[[Albus Dumbledore]] is one of the known wizards who can conjure it and was, in fact, the wizard who provided the branch to be brought to the Gurg. [[Professor]] [[Filius Flitwick|Flitwick]] had mentioned it in Charms "at least twice" before then, according to [[Hermione Granger]].
