A hagraven claw

Hagraven claw as depicted in the Herbalist's Guide to Skyrim

Hagraven Claws are possibly dropped by dead hagravens, in addition to guaranteed hagraven feathers.

"The claws of a hagraven are best obtained in shops; it is inadvisable to suggest one collects them oneself. These creatures have traded in their humanity for access to powerful magics, and the transformations they undergo infuse their entire beings with some element of that power. Ingesting the powdered claws makes one more resistant to magic, but an especially curious property of the claws is revealed when mixed with snowberries (often found in Skyrim's higher elevations). I found myself capable of comprehending enchantments I had believed mystifying after ingesting the mixture, and have passed this knowledge on to several court wizards who were grateful for the knowledge." - Agneta Falia in the Herbalist's Guide to Skyrim.
