Oyster is the name for a number of different families of salt water "bivalve" molluscs that are found in marine or brackish habitats. The Rastellum Carinatum species are a species from the Lower Cretaceous Era that are relatively rare and found in Madagascar.

Specimens of the Rastellum Carinatum have a uniquely angled jaw-like appearance along the outer edge, and these piece shows that off wonderfully. This distinct outer-edge prevented dirt or sand from entering the shell and causing damage to the soft inner body.
