Hawksbill Sea Turtle. Nearly all species of sea turtle are classified as endangered, but the hawksbill is critically endangered largely because of its shell exploitation and trade. Despite being expensive, tortoise shell was attractive to manufacturers and consumers because of its beautiful mottled appearance, its durability, and its organic warmth against the skin. Tortoise shell has long been used as an ornamental gem material for art objects, jewelry, and personal items such as combs and eyeglass frames.
