Spiny Oyster shell, more formally called spondylus brodnip princeps or spondylus princeps, is found in the Sea of Cortez off Baja California, Mexico. Spondylus is a Latin word meaning spines on its back. Brodnip is the name of the scientist who traveled with Cortez on his exploration of Baja California. The shell comes in three main colors: red, orange and purple, and sometimes is found in white and yellow. It was used in jewelry before coral became available. It was the shell most loved by the Mayan people, and has been found in abundance in archeological excavations of the Anasazi, Mogollon and Hohokam of Southwest. In 1976, Native Americans of the Southwest began to export purple spiny oyster shells for jewelry making, popularizing their use abroad. This shell has natural pits and grooves that should not be mistaken for cracks or imperfections in the craftsmanship.

From it’s humble begginings Sleeping Beauty Turquoise from Arizona has become one of the most important Turquoise mines in the world. Sleeping Beauty Turquoise was first found by the Native Americans during the Anasazi times. At this time the Turquoise was mined with hand tools and little bits were collected at a time. The baby blue or “Robin’s Egg” blue Turquoise was mainly used as beads and on shells that the Native American tribes of the Southwest had traded for with the Native American tribes of central and south America. Sleeping Beauty Turquoise also made its way to Pueblo Bonito during the Anasazi times along with Turquoise from other deposits in the Southwest. Pueblo Bonito served as a trade center for Anasazi Turquoise for North American Tribes, Central American Tribes and South American tribes. Since this time, the Sleeping Beauty mine was developed by Anglo peoples in search of Copper and other meetal ore. The Turquoise was under contract by Monty Nichols. Nichols is said to have “Torn down a mountain” to find the famous Sleeping Beauty Turquoise, which is a figure of speech, not an actuality to show how much work the miner has done to get the stone that has become an icon. The world has had a fascination for turquoise for over 7000 years. The oldest known example of any jewelry was a carved turquoise and gold bracelet found on the mummy of an Egyptian queen. In the American Southwest, Native Americans have mined turquoise since prehistoric times. Many legends surround turquoise, it is believed to bring good fortune and health. While turquoise was once used as currency in the American Southwest, it has been treasured as an adornment throughout the centuries worldwide. The evolution of turquoise jewelry from its appeal as southwestern, Native American or tourist jewelry, to one of the most coveted gems set in designer jewelry worldwide. Coveted, that is, only if you are talking about true, genuine turquoise. And so our turquoise love story continues. While the demand for turquoise has increased dramatically, the supply of genuine turquoise is limited. Turquoise jewelry has been worn for both fashion and cultural significance throughout history. Many American Indian tribes believe the stone harbors mystical powers. According to some beliefs, turquoise can keep bad spirits away and some believe it can ward off bad spirits, encourage communication, creativity and spiritual bonding.
