Seemingly correct answer is not being accepted

Can someone point out the logic error I'm making here?

Quote:
 1. Neither the brown and pink seashell nor the seashell found in Martinique is the coquina shell. 2. The blue and white shell was found sometime before the seashell found in Tobago. 3. The seashell found in 2007 is either the white and yellow shell or the honey cerith shell. 4. The seashell found in Saint Lucia was found 3 years before the blue and white seashell. 5. The horned turban shell was found sometime before the brown and pink seashell. 6. Of the black and white seashell and the seashell found in Jamaica, one is the coquina and the other is the shark eye. 7. The seashell found in Martinique isn't pink and white. 8.

Clue #1 - brown/pink cannot be Martinique. However, that's what you show for year 2010.
