I am a Harry Potter fanatic so to speak because I absolutely love all things magically related as well as science fiction!!

My question is this....can a Wands Core have more than one substance or does it only have one (i.e. Unicorn hair and a Thestral hair combo)?

Known core materials

Where the core of the elder wand has been stated? Last I've read about it was in the tales of Beedle the Bard, and no description of its core has been provided, prompting me to think the Elder Wand was the extremely unusual case of a coreless wand. Ngebendi 13:32, March 19, 2010 (UTC)

Is this true?

On the behind the scenes section it states that: "It has been confirmed by J.K. Rowling and the makers of the Harry Potter games that Boggart hair will be used as a wand core". This doesn't really make sense, as boggarts take the form of whatever the person before the boggart most fears, so how can a boggart have hair when its form constantly changes!? If this really is a mistake can someone who has the authority to change it, change it.

It was vandalism. Thanks for pointing it out; I've removed it. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 22:44, December 1, 2010 (UTC)

Known Phoenix core wand

There are actually 3 known phoenix feather core wands. In Harry Potther and the Philosopher Stones, when Harry is at the Ollivander wand shop trying the wand that suit him the best, there's a wand made of phoenix feather and maple wood, 7 inches, which Ollivander described as "Quite whippy"
