Forgive me, I am new here. So... I found this wand. I was walking back in the forest. I stumbled upon a clearing way back there. The ground was covered in gravel and slate. There was also a fair bit of mud, it was a very large clearing. In the middle of a patch of mud sat this wand. There were no recent footprints, so I figured whoever lost it had not come looking for it. I figure it would be easier for me to find the owner than for the owner to find a stick in the woods. I will ask my pagan friends in the area if it belongs to any of them, but if it doesn't, would I be able to use it? I can feel a lot of residual energy in it, but it's all neutral. And if so, how good of a wand is it? It is made of oak and appears to have been struck by lightning. Does that make it more powerful? In case anyone here owns it, it reaches from my elbow to my first knuckle, is made of oak, is thicker at the base than at the tip, is smooth, with a jagged butt end. It is blackened from lightning, and a bit of soot on your hand after use. There are finger marks worn into the base, and I can feel that it has been used a lot for neutral magick. If this belongs to you, contact me. I will leave it hidden in a public place and tell you where to find it. If nobody claims it within a month, I will keep it. If that ends up happening, is it possible to use a wand that was made by someone else? And what of the lightning thing?
If a wand has no owner, then the one who rescued it (you in this case) would be most suited to take its place as its owner and use it for your bidding. I once found an ancient staff that was made of wood, but was inidentifiable as of what type of wood, for it was more plastic-like, but was obviously wood and had great energies. When I rescued it, it became my friend in a way. To this day I miss it, but it is lost and I don't know where (little kids stole it from room and did who knows what with it).
