A lovely tumbled Emerald with great green color saturation tops a spiny Mexican Plum branch. No doubt about it, Emeralds are pricey, but I think this one, a full 1/2 inch long, makes this wand a worthy tool. There is a lot of Fae, Dryad and Greenwich energy is this unique wand. Because the spines are delicate, care should be taken in transport, outdoor and group use. While many wands are meant to be held, and you could certainly use this creature in this way, I would also just set Walking Stick on the ground, table, or in a tree, and follow it wherever it might take me in the spirit realms.
