Man has always believed in the mental and spiritual strength concentrated in horns, from cave painting of deer and ram, to the oxen of early agriculture. The horn has become a symbol of reverence and thankfulness between man and beast. This Ebony horn is mysterious and earthy. Ebony is a luscious hardwood revered for finely carved and polished crafts, from furniture to art, musical instruments, and many other decorative pieces. The nearly pitch black wood is found beneath the unassuming bark of the tree. Only when the magnificent trunk it split open, is the prized material exposed. Sadly Ebony has been largely deforested and is rightfully, now a protected species. We use only ethically repurposed Ebony for our designs. This 1.5 inch long vintage ebony horn is strung on a 18" or 20" recycled 18K gold chain, with a lobster clasp.
