From the jaws of the massive Megalodon shark, this is a stunning, highly lustrous multi-colored copper red (one of the most desirable colors to collectors!) and cream gold tooth. Despite its size, only very, very rarely do you ever find a tooth of this quality. This tooth's high luster is NATURAL and unlike many other dealers' teeth, has not been machine polished, dipped in oil, floor polish or coated with some type of artificial shine. The red brown root and bourlette contrast with the creamy gold and copper blade showing amazing mottled patterns as if veiled in smoke. The root is extremely dense and complete. Serrations and tip are crisp and sharp showing a touch of natural feeding wear from when this monster shark was alive. Blade edges where the serrations meet the root on either side are unbroken. There are tons of Megalodon teeth out there on the market that will never be worth the money you pay for them and truckloads have been found for every single tooth that is of this quality. A superb specimen that will give a lifetime of pride to its owner.
Divers will tell you that Megalodon teeth like this are extremely difficult to find in today's waters. This spectacular specimen is loaded with so many features desired by advanced Megalodon tooth collectors. Current and increasing future demand will never be satisfied by the dwindling numbers of the truly top grade specimens such as this beauty, hence their constantly increasing prices each year.
Megalodon teeth found in rivers are almost always heavily eroded and worn from the high energy environment in which they were subjected to. They usually have dull, sand-blasted enamel, peeling back from the core. The roots are often damaged. This tooth is amongst THE FINEST Megalodon teeth typically found. While we strictly avoid Megalodon teeth with restoration or repair, Caveat emptor as some Megalodon teeth in many dealers' inventories in the larger sizes and "seemingly" fine qualities have repair or restoration and this is not often disclosed to the buyer accurately either because of ignorance or dishonesty.
