Lovely pendant of a Spiny Oyster Shell set in Solid .925 Sterling Silver. Would look nice on any chains or collars - and would go with a wide range of fall colored clothing.
Spiny Oysters (or Spondylus as they are called) is a genus of bi-valve molluscs, but is not a true oyster. They do have some attributes of an oyster such as the two-part hinged shells. They are found mostly in warm waters from Baja California or the Sea of Cortez. Their main colors are in the range of reds, oranges and purples - and are not dyed and don't have to be enhanced by jewelers. Their beautiful range of colors come from their diet of various kinds of seaweed and plankton.
