Great quality tan Indonesian Megalodon tooth with beautiful small hints of red, purple and blue color in the light-colored enamel on both sides. Neat yellow to orange bourlette.Root is nearly as good as they get, while not perfect for which you would pay an absolute king's ransom. Tip is intact and serrations are good, and although a couple serrations are not perfect anymore, this is a tooth that is up there with the best of them.
Size is 4.76 or 12.1cm in length (at its longest, including root). It was found in a Miocene limestone deposit near Sukabumi in West Java, Indonesia. I personally verified the specimen's authenticity threefold. 1 Acquisition directly from a reliable source on Java island, Indonesia, with whom I remain in close contact.
2 Meticulous inspection at daylight wavelengths under magnification (using a microscope). 3 Additional inspection with short-wave UV light under magnification. Short-wave UV light allows for the detection of glues and resins, which were NOT seen on this specimen.
