Casein :

Casein is a protein precipitated from milk, as by rennet, and forming the basis of cheese and certain plastics.
Our Casein is a plastic that exhibits as an off white color with alternating shades of off white. It has quite an elegant look with higher end pens.

Cholla :

Cholla, or walking stick cholla, is a cactus found in the southwestern United States and northern Mexico. Naturalized in Australia, it is known there by the name Devil's Rope Cactus.
Cholla is sometimes grown as an ornamental. The dead stems decay to leave a hollow wooden tube with a pattern of lengthwise slits. These are sometimes used to make curios, and in this case, pens and other turned objects.
The Roman Catholic Pentinentes of New Mexico tied fresh stems to their bare backs in Holy week processions.

Deer Antler :

Deer antlers are very difficult to drill due to the curve, and a thick piece is needed for larger pens. We also try to leave some of the rough outer layer of the antler so it doesn't have just a plain, white look.
We'll do our best, but if we can't make it work, we'll let you know and refund your money. 

Elk Antler :

When turned, Elk Antler exhibits some interesting colors including varying degrees of purple and some light pinks, mostly from the Marrow. You will not see much plain white with this! Don't let the colors deter you, Elk is beautiful!
Just keep this away from your dog!
