Cornum is a unique unicorn with a special talent that sets him apart from all the others. While most unicorns possess magical abilities like healing powers or the ability to fly, Cornum’s talent lies in music. He has a horn that can sound like any musical wind instrument, and his notes can vary from soothing melodies to brassy, boisterous tunes.
Cornum’s personality also reflects his talent, as he has a brassy and self-centered demeanor that can sometimes rub his fellow unicorns the wrong way. But despite his sometimes prickly exterior, Cornum has proven time and again that he cares for his tribe and will put himself on the line for their well-being. Cornum’s musical abilities are truly remarkable, and his horn is often the centerpiece of the tribe’s celebrations and ceremonies. His soothing melodies can calm even the most anxious of unicorns, and his lively tunes can make them all dance and revel.
Cornum is the Latin word for horn. It is also means “one horn”. Another definition for the word is “a musical instrument like a trumpet”.
Cornum is a lime-green unicorn who is a member of the Musical Herd of the Metal-Horned Tribe of Unicorns. His horn can sound like a trumpet, French horn, and a tuba. It can also sound like a cornet, flügelhorn, sousaphone, a saxophone or even a wooden recorder.
To hear a beautiful French horn solo listen to Tchaikovsky’s 5th Symphony french horn solo by Danilo Stagni on youtube at https://youtu.be/KgxuzMilgC8.
Cornum’s horn also sounds bugle calls during the battle scenes. You can hear military bugle calls at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bugle_call
In the Magical Elements of the Periodic Table Presented Alphabetically By The Metal Horn Unicorns, readers are briefly introduced to Cornum, the Brass Horned Unicorn. Cornum is one of the metal horn unicorns featured in the Journey To Osm collection of books by Sybrina Durant.

The Metal Horn Unicorns Make Science Magical
This periodic table reference page is brought to you by the Magical Elements of the Periodic Table Presented Alphabetically By The Metal Horn Unicorns book. They say, “No Metal – No Magic…and No Technology”.
In this unique alphabet book, members of the Metal Horn Unicorn Tribe present 26 Magical Elements of the Periodic Table in alphabetical order. Each member of the tribe has a metal horn and hooves. They also have magical powers based on the properties of their metals.
Alumna starts out the book by introducing the very necessary metal, aluminum, on her element page. Dr. Zinko rounds out the alphabet by presenting facts and other fun information about the metal, zinc, on his element page. Other members of the Metal Horn Tribe from Unimaise, plus some of their magical elemental friends, will give some great insight into the properties of 23 additional pure metals from the periodic table.
There is one special unicorn in the book whose horn and hooves are an alloy created by combining copper and zinc. Cornum, the Brass Horned unicorn will reveal some interesting things about that metal.
While not all elements in the Periodic Table are represented by letters of the alphabet, some in this book, are introduced by alternate designations. For instance, Tungsten is also known as Wolfram so “W” is used as the entry for that alphabetical letter in this book. The letter “W” is also used as the atomic symbol for tungsten in all periodic tables.
Each element page in this book contains terms that might not be completely familiar. Refer to the definitions in the back of the book to get a clear understanding of each meaning. There is also a fun unicorn themed Periodic Table at the back of the book.
The Metal Horn unicorns from Unimaise and their other techno-magical unicorn friends are the perfect group to introduce you to metals and other elements in the Periodic Table. Hopefully the Magical Elements of this periodic table book will spark an interest in the magical and real world properties of all the metals and other elements known today. You may be surprised at how prominently they feature in our every day lives.
