Spiny Oyster shells are harvested from the seabed at a depth of between nine and forty five metres in coastal waters around the Gulf of California right down to the top of Peru. Technically a thorny mollusc, Spiny Oysters are still collected by hand. Passed down through generations, divers are trained to deep dive whilst holding their breath. Children learn from their parents and grandparents how to dive using no breathing apparatus, holding their breath for three or more minutes. The natural purple colour Spiny Oysters inhabit the deeper waters which make them much rarer and more expensive. Collection of these molluscs is a very risky business.

The Aztecs used Spiny Oysters in their jewellery and religious artefacts, including the construction of masks.
