Ashwinder eggs are the eggs of the Ashwinder, a magical serpent which is born from the embers of an unattended magical fire.

DescriptionEdit

The Ashwinder eggs are extremely hot and flammable, and, if not frozen in time, will light fire to the surrounding area. They are bright red and, when frozen, very valuable.

PotionsEdit

Frozen eggs are also a common ingredient in potions, particularly Love Potions. They can also be swallowed whole as an antidote to ague.

HistoryEdit

Some enlarged Ashwinder eggs played a large part in the ending of the Hogwarts school pantomime tradition. In the play, The Fountain of Fair Fortune, an Ashwinder was supplied by Professor Kettleburn to play the 'blind and bloated' worm. The Ashwinder was enlarged with the use of an Engorgement Charm, however things got out of control and the Ashwinder laid its eggs. These eggs, presumed to be enlarged like the Ashwinder, set fire to the floorboards in the Great Hall and ended the Hogwarts pantomime tradition.

Behind the scenesEdit

The eggs were featured in the mobile version of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, and can be found on top of the Astronomy Tower. Why they were there is unknown.
