Fossil Squalicorax Sharks Teeth

Small fossilised Squalicorax Sharks Teeth, available in a few 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.

We sell two 'types' of teeth:

  • Squalicorax teeth that are largely complete and haven't had any (or any visible, at least) restoration work done. 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 other kind are damaged, some missing fragments of the tooth or root, others with signs of glue or other restoration. These are sold in bulk, ideal for artists or... well, whoever else might have a use for fossil sharks teeth. I would hesitate to recommend these for children's parties etc as the serrations can be genuinely sharp.


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!

    Ordered a single squalicorax tooth for a friend to cast in resin as a present for my shark loving nephew and this tooth was in such good condition (much better than display pic), he couldn’t risk it not working out and made a case for it instead. Thanks again 🙂
