I don't know about oyster shell, but:

cobalt(II) oxide Could be a Co atom having a +2 charge which will join an O atom having a -2 charge. cobalt(III) oxide would have 2 Co atoms each with a charge of -3 surrounded by 3 O atoms each with a -2 charge. In each case, the O atoms maintin their -2 charge (as they tend to do)

also, the fact that it's dissolved in an alcohol means you might be trying to oxidize a molecule that doesn't dissolve in water. The solvent doesn't really matter, as far as reactions go. You just got to rmemember which solvents are polar protic, aprotic, and nonpolar :)

You probably want to broaden your search to the larger grouping that Oysters belong (hint: seashells, mollusks)
I found a nice description searching under: composition of sea shells.

Oyster shell is a brand name for calcium carbonate, which makes sense because oysters shells are probably primarily calcium carbonate :smile: .
