Powder of Power

Powder of power appears as opalescent sand; when a handful is thrown into the air and a command word is spoken, the powder erupts in a pulse of pure magical energy. This has no physical effect whatsoever.

However, it disrupts all traces of magical energy within a 30-foot radius. For purposes of Detect Magic, all magic auras with a rating of strong or below are erased; instead, the entire area is flooded with a single strong aura in the Universal sphere. If a spellcaster is studying the area using the detect magical residue spell, she can make a Spellcraft check (DC 15) to recognize that lesser auras may have been wiped clean. If a person or creature who is actively detecting magic is caught in the pulse, she must make a Will save (DC 15) or be stunned for 1d4 rounds. The powder is destroyed when it’s used.
