Just a reminder to folks that sea turtles are endangered and international trade in turtle products is illegal, even if a country (like Turkey) allows the sale of the products within the country. Individual fines are in the tens of thousands of dollars for violation:

Penalties for knowingly violating ESA or CITES include fines up to $50,000 fine and/or up to 1 year imprisonment. “Knowing” is to be interpreted in the legal sense. Remember: ignorance of the law is not an excuse. This applies if you simply carry your instrument across the border with no prior knowledge of CITES or ESA.


This also goes for instrument decoration; I've seen a lot of folks who have bought ouds in/from Turkey with turtle shell pickguards, inlay or other decoration and brought them back to the US—you should be aware that your instrument could be seized and you would be liable for large fines if caught doing so.

EDIT: looks like the comments about selling turtle shell rishas were removed, but they are still for sale on the site. Caveat Emptor, as they say.
