Spiny Oyster, not surprisingly, is an oyster that is covered with spines. It is found along the coast of Baja California and Baja Mexico. Its shell ranges from shades of vibrant red to oranges and purples, with definite striations and variation of the colors. Red spiny oyster is sometimes used as a subsititute for coral.

Why isn't this item called Native American?

The US Department of the Interior Indian Arts and Crafts Act of 1990 and its recent Amendments require that items described as Native American or Indian be made by an enrolled member of a federally recognized tribe. Furthermore, government regulations suggest that all attributions include the Native American Indian's name, tribe and federal tribal enrollment number. Because it is impossible to identify the artist for many vintage items, even if they are authentic Indian made items, we cannot and will not use the words Native American or Indian in association with such pieces.
