Description

Spondylus or Spiny Oysters are a widely divergent genus of bivalve mollusks, all of which share the singularly identifiable characteristic of a covering of spines or thorns.
Representatives of the genus can be found in most of the earths oceans and vary widely in color, form and size. They also have an illustrious history of being collected by Europeans as far back as 5000 years ago, and as a medium of exchange in pre-Columbian Ecuador.
