The wand of Bellatrix Lestrange was 12¾” walnut, with a dragon heartstring core. It was constructed by Ollivander, who described it as being “unyielding”. The wand also has a slight bend in it, making it appear somewhat like a bird’s talon. 
Bellatrix’s wand wood, walnut, is associated with some old European superstitions. In seventeenth-century Italy, a walnut tree in Benevento was believed to be a gathering place for witches. Another legend held that nothing should be grown near a walnut tree, because it contains evil or poison.
