Nymphadora Tonks's wand is of unknown length, wood, and core materials. The wand was manufactured by Garrick Ollivander sometime before 1984. She wielded this wand throughout her career as a Auror. Judging from Pottermore, her wand was likely made from Rowan and Unicorn hair. It has been speculated that this wand resembles a pitcher plant. Under close examination by a person familiar with Herbology it has been determined that this wand more closely resembles the form of the genus Arisaema, or Jack-in-the-pulpit.
Like most wizards and witches in Britain, it is likely that Tonks purchased her wand, from Garrick Ollivander, at the age of eleven before beginning her education at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in 1984. Using her wand, she secured good enough marks in her O.W.L. and N.E.W.T. exams to become an Auror, starting her training when she left Hogwarts in 1991.
Tonks underwent three years of Auror training, naturally exceeding in the Concealment and Disguise portion of the course because of her Metamorphic abilities, and became an official Auror in 1994. It is presumed that she used her wand during the training.
She wielded this wand throughout the Second Wizarding War. In June of 1996, Tonks participated in the Battle of the Department of Mysteries. In the June of 1997, Tonks participated in the Battle of the Astronomy Tower, where she duelled Thorfinn Rowle, who fired spells rapidly at her, however, he was forced to flee with his companions.
Tonks also took part in the Battle of the Seven Potters, where she duelled Bellatrix Lestrange again, this time in mid-air. Bellatrix was determined to kill her, however, Tonks held her off and also seriously injured her husband, Rodolphus Lestrange.
In the May of 1998, Tonks participated in the Battle of Hogwarts, where she was seen firing spells out of one of the Castle's windows. She was later murdered by Bellatrix Lestrange. If the cause of her death was due to another duel between the two of them or not remains unknown.
It is not known what happened to Tonks' wand after her death, although it is possible that it was laid to rest alongside her in her grave.
