Fossil Great White shark teeth from U.S.A. are highly uncommon in the Miocene / Pliocene layers. It seems that during the reign of Megalodon, the Great White shark, Carcharodon carcharias, was keeping a low profile and for a good reason, Megalodon was much larger with just as bad an attitude if not worse. It isn't until the Pleistocene that the fossil shark teeth of the Great White Shark are found with greater regularity.
This is a nice complete, large fossil tooth of a prehistoric Great White shark. The crown and root are complete. The naturally lustrous steel gray and blue enamel contrasts well with the black root. The serrations show natural feeding wear but the tip is intact and sharp. This is a great tooth to start out a collection, for jewelry, or an impressive teaching aid.
