Royston Turquoise comes from the Royston mining district located near Tonopah, Nevada and has been mined since the early 1900s. The Royston mine produces some incredible turquoise ranging in color from a deep sky blue to dark greens. Often the colors run together in the same stone with the golden brown mottled or webbed matrix. The mines are primarily owned and operated by the Otteson family.

Spiny oyster is a sustainable byproduct collected by diving to collect the shells of bivalve mollusks that live in the warm waters of the Gulf of California on the Baja Peninsula and thrive from North Carolina to Brazil. It’s found in white, pink, yellow, orange, red, purple, and a pleasing brown, with a depth of interesting striation; it adds a breathtaking contrast when paired with other stones. Spiny oyster comes in many shades, ranging from pale peach to very deep red.
