Arturo Cephalopos was a wandmaker in the 19th century. During this period, silver lime was fashionable as a wand wood, and he claimed that its alleged association with divination powers was "a falsehood circulated by merchants like Gerbold Ollivander, who have overstocked their workshops with it and hope to shift their surplus." However, according to Gerbold's grandson Garrick Ollivander, Cephalopos was a "slipshod wandmaker" and "an ignoramus," who, to no one's surprise, went out of business.[1]
