Fossilised Mosasaur Tooth on Matrix
A genuine fossilised Mosasaur tooth on matrix made of composite stone. See below for more information!
They make amazing cheap gifts for children and collectors, and make a nice display object.
The stone matrix of the piece is likely to be a composite. What this means is, it is not the original stone the fossil teeth are found in, but has been constructed.
These pieces may have been repaired, too – look at the end of the tooth pictured and you can see a slight crack. The reason these teeth are repaired and set into a matrix is to give unusable broken teeth a new ‘lease on life’.
We realise that this ruins some of the ‘magic’ of the fossil. However, we don’t believe in offering items for sale without revealing everything we know about them!
