This is an awesome fossil shark tooth. It is a large (over five inches long!) Carcharocles megalodon Extinct White Shark tooth from Aurora, North Carolina. This specimen was recently acquired from a major fossil shark tooth collection. Megalodon teeth from North Carolina are very scarce, since fossil collecting in the Lee Creek Mine was drastically curtailed a few years ago. The quality and color of this tooth is simply exquisite. The enamel is beautifully preserved - the color is as pretty as we have ever seen from this site. The serrations and tip are almost perfectly preserved and razor-sharp - one ding keeps them from being perfect. The root, too, is practically flawless. Overall, this is one of the coolest 5"+ Aurora Meg teeth we have ever seen. It is a top quality, VERY collectible Lee Creek Meg tooth that displays spectacularly.

This fossil was collected and obtained legally, and is also being sold legally. A Certificate of Authenticity from EXTINCTIONS is included with this specimen.
