Thanks

If the open end is round rather than oval then it certainly resin.
Unusual with camels. The level of detail is missing which further suggests resin.
Perhaps a hot pin test.

Check out the link. You will need a decent magnifying glass and look at the smooth part of the horn.

You can also take it to a reputable jeweler and they should be able to tell you
