Bruko uses this on some of their fretboards, etc. Anyone know what this is? Is it a wood, a composite or...

Reigalas are a deer like animal that thrives in Germany. Germans harvest their horns every spring and put the horns into machines which turn out a curly maple like material which is sonically perfect for playing German repertoire like the Wagner ring circles.
