Horn beads are made from the recycled horns of Cara water buffalo, African Cape buffalo, or Asian buffalo. Some buffalo horn beads are old or antique. Cara horn is naturally black but it can be bleached and dyed in different colors, including white, bone, light or dark brown, amber and deep red. Cara horn beads can be polished to a smooth, shiny finish and designs can be etched into them, and the African Cape buffalo has long horns. The Asian Water buffalo is the largest of the Bovine animals family, which includes yak, bison, African buffalo and wild cattle.
