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][1]
