This question already has an answer here:

The Elder Wand in the Harry Potter series was considered to be the most powerful wand, does that make it indestructible? How did Harry just snap the Elder Wand as if it was a thin wooden stick?

  • if he was able to snap it, it obviously wasn't indestructible. – phantom42 Sep 3 '15 at 12:37
  • although he in fact doesn't snap it in the book, he just returns it to the one that owned it before its previous owner, well the guy's small marble quarters anyway... – BMWurm Sep 3 '15 at 13:08
