Dark Magic Items

"I have a few -- ah -- items at home that might embarrass me, if the Ministry were to you can see, certain of these poisons--"
     -- Lucius Malfoy to Mr. Borgin (CS4)

Dark Magic items are magical artifacts that contain sinister, dangerous magical powers. Some, like the Hand of Glory, simply give light, but are obviously created using evil magic; a Hand of Glory actually uses a real human hand, for example. Other Dark Magic items are cursed, like the opal necklace in Borgin and Burkes. Horcruxes are in a category of their own (see).
