SPONDYLUS more commonly called SPINY OYSTER is large and very colorful. The Spiny Oyster is not even an oyster but in the scallop family. Spiny Oyster shell beads are unique, beautiful, and also difficult-to-harvest. You'll find Spiny oyster around the world typically along the coasts of North Carolina all the way down to the waters near Brazil, also in the Sea of Cortez, and off the coast of Baja Mexico and Baja California. Often used in jewelry this sea animal is in high demand for its appearance and color.

Some shells of the Spiny Oyster are rare finds and are especially treasured by Native American Indian artists for their beautiful red, pink, brown, yellow, orange, purple, and white colors.
