Description

  • Approximate beads in per strand: 100
  • What is it: The spiny oyster is in the spondylus family of mollusks. They are also known as thorny oysters or spondylids. Despite its name, these mollusks are not actually oysters but are more closely related to scallops. Spiny oysters are edible, and the mollusks are harvested for both their shell and meat.
  • History: Spiny oysters shells were carved and traded for at least 10,000 years. Natives of the now county of Columbia harvested these mollusks as a staple food source.
  • Metaphysical Properties: Spiny Oyster Shells represent hope and courage.
     
  • Because gemstones are natural materials, appearances may vary from bead to bead.
