This is a beautiful, collector grade, top quality Megalodon fossil shark tooth with stunning colors and top overall preservation. Serration detail is excellent with very light natural feeding wear in places. The unique color is a pearlescent champagne and blue-gray combination with a hint of gold blush near the tip. The brown root contrasts with the unusually colored smoky light cool gray bourlette. The tooth displays a NATURAL high luster. VERY rarely are Megalodon teeth found of this caliber any more!!!
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. While we strictly avoid Megalodon teeth with restoration or repair, Caveat emptor as some Megalodon teeth in 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. We acquire all our Megalodon teeth directly from divers and we clean every specimen in our own on-premises lab facility.
