Black Shark Tooth


Captivating example of a fossilized shark tooth. Set in a sterling silver pronged frame that has a strip of stingray leather on its bail. Very provocative and powerful.

Fossilized shark teeth are usually found covered in sediment on the ocean floor. Rapid covering of a tooth is important as it protects it from decay and weathering. Fossilization takes thousands of years. It occurs as water seeps through the sediments and deposits minerals into the porous tooth, usually silica and calcite. The minerals will usually determine the color of the fossil. Please see below for a size reference.
