Effect

Conjures ice

"A charm that conjures a blast of freezing cold air from the end of the wand."
—Description in The Standard Book of Spells, Grade 3[src]

The Freezing Spell (Glacius) is a freezing charm that conjures ice from the tip of the wand, which in turn can extinguish fires, create ice blocks and cool off salamanders. The spell is capable of freezing several inches of water solid within seconds, making it durable enough for a thirteen-year old to walk across without falling through or injuring themselves.

Effect

This charm has the unfortunate side-effect of making the breath of anyone nearby turn into thick white mist due to the extreme frigidity caused by the spell's casting.

History

Professor Remus Lupin taught this spell to his third year class by hiding a spellbook somewhere behind a secret passageway in the classroom and having students find and read it. Later on that year, Professor Filius Flitwick included it in the third year exams for charms class.

Practitioners

Etymology

The incantation is Latin for "ice"[2]
