Buffalo bone : Domesticated WATER BUFFALO HORN (Bovine) LATIN NAME: Bubalus bubalis ORIGIN: South East Asia HARVESTING PRACTICE: The horn we use is a by-product of meat production and farming practice. OTHER DETAILS: Recycled. The water buffalo of South East Asia is a domesticated animal. It is used to plow fields and carry loads. They are well treated and important to the survival of the native people. When they are too old to work, they are eaten and all parts of the animal are utilized. They are never taken in pursuit of the horns! OUR SOURCE: Ours comes from the Island of Lombok, Sulawesi and Sumbawa, Indonesia. ABOUT THE HORN AND ITS CARE: Horn is very much like your hair or fingernails in nature, and requires care! Take care to protect it from harsh elements and not to drop it or sit or step on it! The horn needs to be conditioned, and should be oiled to protect it with jojoba oil, coconut oil or some other organic jewelry care product. This will maintain the color and preserve the smooth surface. Organic horn should never be left in water or direct sunlight (like the bathroom sink or the dashboard of your car).
