"Red, white and blue sparks are currently so thick in the air that it is both difficult to breathe or see"
—Ginevra Weasley

White sparks (incantation unknown) is a charm that precipitates a jet of white sparks from the tip of the wand.[1] It can also be used offensively as a minor duelling spell.[2] When conjured in large quantities, it is difficult to see or breathe when in the vicinity.[3]

Known Uses
