Spondylus aka Spiny Oyster. Spiny oysters develop vibrant colors because of their differing diets; seaweed and various forms of plankton. Orange, Red, and Purple are the most common colors although others do exist. Generally, the more vibrant the hue, the more valuable the piece of shell, or jewelry. Only the inside edge of the shell develops this deep color making it even harder to create larger spiny oyster jewelry pieces.
These organic gemstones are believed to give motherly love and protection.
