Buffalo horn is the most common material, and its texture is brittle. It is less durable than yak horn and sheep horn. Buffalo grows in the south, and buffalo horn itself is moist. Always apply baby cream when buffalo horn glasses are used in dry climates, otherwise it will be easy to dry and crack. Yak horn mostly comes from Tibet region of China, Yak horn horn is tough and durable, and has the same health care effect as buffalo horn. It is cold resistant and has striated lines. Yak horn can be divided into black and white, white and transparent yellow, and its products are a rare choice in terms of health care and durability. In particular, white yak horn is more rare, and white horn glasses are more precious. Many other horn glasses are made of goat horns. The color of goat horns is generally yellow or khaki, and some are off-white. Generally, there are dots, strips or silky blood streaks dotted between them, and there are few pure colors. Yellow ox horn, the material itself is relatively small, generally thin, not much thick, only the part with the tip of the horn will have a lot, the color of yellow ox horn is very rich, generally light green, dark green, dark red, brown, Yellow and black are mixed, and there are few pure colors. Looking at the light, the light-colored parts have good permeability, and the different color blocks are generally presented as a whole. Most of the yellow horns used to make horn glasses come from India.

Horn is a sustainable material. All of the horn materials that we use to make horn glasses come from domesticated animals, not wild cattle. Cattle have always been one of the most important domesticated animals for human beings, and horn is only a by-product of animal husbandry, only from old and natural death, and take the best part to make horn glasses. Cattle are not slaughtered for their horns, but the country allows the use of other materials, including horns and cowhide for leather, for the meat of the cattle and by-products produced by the industry without adding or perpetuating additional environmental, ethical or sustainable impacts .

Like all natural materials, horn responds to external influences. Ultrasonic cleaning should be avoided if possible, as well as use in high temperature and high pressure or dry environments. It is very important to do regular care. If you use it every day, wipe the horn glasses with a special microfiber glasses cloth and put them in the glasses case. It is best to apply a thin layer of baba cream on the surface of the horn glasses every two to three weeks, after about 10 hours until it is fully absorbed, wipe it off with an eyeglass cloth. This way, you can optimally maintain the finish of your horn glasses and continue to enjoy them for many years to come.
