A bag of unicorn tail hairs.

"But my dear chap, do you know how much that's worth?"
Horace Slughorn commented to Hagrid upon seeing bunches of Unicorn hair hanging around Hagrid's cabin[src]

The hair from a unicorn can be used to comprise the core of a wand. It is also very strong and useful. Rubeus Hagrid collected it from the forest where it got caught up in trees and bushes and used it to bind bandages. As of early 1997, Unicorn hair was worth 10 Galleons a hair, according to Horace Slughorn.

Wandlore

Unicorn hair generally produces the most consistent magic, and is least subject to fluctuations and blockages. Wands with unicorn cores are generally the most difficult to turn to the Dark Arts. They are the most faithful of all wands, and usually remain strongly attached to their first owner, irrespective of whether he or she was an accomplished witch or wizard.[1]

Minor disadvantages of unicorn hair are that they do not make the most powerful wands (although the wand wood may compensate) and that they are prone to melancholy if seriously mishandled, meaning that the hair may ‘die’ and need replacing.[1]
