Fossil Squalicorax Sharks Teeth
Small fossilised Squalicorax Sharks Teeth, available in three different sizes.
Squalicorax was an ancient shark which lived during the Cretaceous, and was typically around two metres long.
Their tooth were serrated, and are actually found with serrations intact.
Squalicorax teeth are common finds in Europe, America, and Africa – particularly from Morocco, where this stock comes from.
These teeth are ‘off matrix’, meaning they do not come set into the stone they may have been found in. This makes it easier to make them into jewellery, but makes them a little harder to display as specimens.
Condition wise, these are good for the price – many will still have reasonably sharp serrations, and the roots are relatively intact on the pieces I checked. They do often have scratches on the ‘enamel’ surface of the tooth, as you can see in the photographs. The teeth may show some small cracks or signs of damage – or, signs of restoration.
The pictures you see here are representative of the products and are usually not the exact item you will receive. Where various grades are available we do try to photograph each grade – but some photographs are still on their way!
