Spiny Oyster shell is often inlaid or used as cabochons and the color combination of Spiny Oyster and turquoise is as old as the human love for adornment.  Coming all the way from the Sea of Cortez in Mexico, Spiny Oyster shell is most commonly seen in orange, red and purple. The more strident the color, the more expensive the shell is.  Red and purple shells are found a much greater depth than the brilliant oranges and are rare and more expensive.

Spiny Oyster beads of good color are much coveted and can be worn with all of your turquoise and silver pieces.
