What do you call that?

Natural wood, holly from the center of a small tree. Not a terminal bud, as the tree has those pruned out regularly. A little longer than your average wand, about the length of my entire arm. One end is a point, for directing energy in the way of a wand, but the other end is also a business end. It has three prongs that spiral out and then closed, and is the gathering end. It isn't a wand, or a spindle, or a stang (goodness it threw a hissy when I suggested it might get shod), or a distaff (the wool would get stuck in the spiral). It is for controlling storms of all sorts. More than anything it looks like a stretched-out dorje, which is a magical implement used in the Himalayas, sometimes said to be thunderstones. It's asked for ornaments of skin, feather, and red stone.
Has anyone else ever used, or even heard of, this tool?

Ask and see, the worst it can say is "No."

Interesting about the weather rake. Last week, we had this wicked storm move in. Started pounding us with baseball size hard ice hail...a lot of it. I got up, faced the direction the storm was coming from (stayed in the house of course), use my arms and hands above my head in a separating motion, while telling it to disperse and go away. Did this for the other three directions. By the time I reached the last direction, the hail stopped, and the storm moved on...30 seconds in total from when the hail started. The storm move to another area and pounded the hell out of it...sorry folks, but I wanted my area safe.

Have pic of a really kickass version of the tool? Curious, melerly
I understand if you don't want to share images of your working implements.
"The truth about the world, he said, is that anything is possible. Had you not seen it from birth and thereby bled it of its strangeness it would appear to you for what it is, a hat trick in a medicine show, a fevered dream, a trance bepopulate with chimeras having neither analogue nor precedent, an itinerant carnival, a migratory tentshow whose ultimate destination after many a pitch in many a mudded field is unspeakable and calamitous beyond reckoning." - Cormac McCarthy
