Additional Information: Bighorn Sheep Horn has a good amount of folklore, mana, and mojo associated with this horn. The male rams are famous for their huge curled horns that are often used in wicked battles. The horn from a Bighorn Sheep is quite rare because most animals that are harvested end up on the hunter's wall. The horn I use is from the Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep species. This horn was harvested in Wyoming and was purchased at a Wyoming Game and Fish auction. The exterior of the horn has beautiful curls/rings and texture with a blondish-brown color. The interior of the horn often has multi-colored striations and can be highly polished. This particular piece has an exterior horn side and an interior horn side.

Honduras Rosewood is a very hard and heavy wood with multi red and brown colors. Honduras Rosewood has a distinctive rose fragrance. This wood has been sought after hundreds of years ago from furniture and musical instrument makers. Honduras Rosewood sometimes produces a burl in which the grain is radically deformed because of some stress or damage and makes small birdseye knots. This burl wood is highly figured and is sliced into veneers and thus accounts for much of its rarity and price. The Honduras Rosewood Burl that I use has been sustainably harvested. This piece of burl has lots of figure and provides a nice contrast to the Bighorn Sheep Horn.
