    • n hartshorn The antler of the hart or stag, Cervus elaphus. The constituent elements of deciduous antlers differ materially from those of persistent horns, as of the ox, and are identical, or nearly so, with those of bone. These antlers were formerly much used as a source of ammonia, and the products of their distillation were employed in medicine under the name of the volatile salt of hartshorn, or spirit of hartshorn; but they have now been superseded by simpler preparations of ammonia and ammonium carbonate, often called by the same name. See ammonia, 1.
    • n hartshorn Spirit of hartshorn; ammonia.
