Fox turquoise runs a range of rich forest greens to soft blue, but is generally recognized for its teal and green stones, found as veins and nuggets. The Fox mine continues to be a successful producing mine today. 

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. 

Here, pieces of both are contrasted against deep brown and white seashell beads accented by hand-tooled sand stamped sterling silver beads with a hook closure. This necklace has a lot of personality and versatility and is built to last for generations to come.
