The unicorn is a legendary animal.
It is usually portrayed as a slender, white horse with
a spiraling horn on its forehead, although its appearance
and behavior differs, depending on the location.
The belief in the healing abilities of the horn is
probably based on a medieval story. In this particular
tale, many animals once gathered around a pool in the
midst of night. The water was poisoned and they could
not drink from it, until a unicorn appeared. He simply
dipped his horn in the pool and the water became
fresh and clean again.
