Thank you for your interest in this beautiful silver plated Shark tooth fossil. If you have any inquiries regarding this or any of my other auctions please feel free to contact me. All payments made by the use of bank transfer will incur a discount of 2.6 percent. This is a unique Megalodon shark tooth because it has a huge piece of coral stuck to it. The coral covers most of the root and some of the crown.
Its thick with a plethora of star shaped patterns on it. The Meg tooth is in natural condition. The root is a nice brown colour and is complete. The crown is complete with enamel and serrations. The colour of the enamel is a nice green/ cream colour.This is a wonderful fossil and something that I do not usually sell because it is to hard for me to obtain it. So this is a rare most likely saught after tooth. So here is one of a few. I hope you enjoy this.
Measurements: I have measured the tooth From the left and right slant And the widest section of the tooth Being the width. L= 4.842, 123.00 mm R= 4.424, 112.38 mm W= 3.559, 90.4. Not only was Megalodon the biggest prehistoric shark that ever lived; it was the largest Shark in history, outweighing both the modern Sharks.Since Megalodon is known from thousands of teeth but only a few bones. Over the past century, people have come up with estimates (based n tooth size) ranging from 40 to 100 feet and weighed as much as 100 tons. Megalodon had a diet of whales and other large marine animal. The reason the teeth fossilized is due to burial and compression.
Fossils are not simply made but require specific circumstances. Lapidary equipment is used to high. Diamonds, Ammonites, fossil wood & semi precious stones.
It is a time consuming procedure required to achieve the artistic high glossy finish on these rare, very old & very fragile Shark teeth. In many of them you will see your own reflection, of course no two are alike & are hands down the most beautiful teeth I have ever seen. The finish is smooth as water and flat as glass. Pictures do not & can not represent these teeth.
Only when one is in your hands, will you feel the imbued beauty and ancient power these fossil procure. I really do my best to make everyone who buys from me happy. If ever I do make a mistake with someone, I will do everything within my will to rectify the situation and make it right.Express post accepted on request.
