Effect of the Shield (Glass into Sand)

Behind the scenes

  • This spell only appears in the film adaptation of the Duel in the Ministry Atrium.
  • As glass is made principally from sand to begin with, the actual purpose of this spell may be more along the lines of disintegration, or transfiguration into a simpler state, rather than specifically glass-to-sand but it is possible that because glass is made from sand the shield simply reverts something from its current state back into what it was made from.
