Description

Details

A one of a kind piece, made by hand, this beautiful fossil shark tooth was craftily set into this sterling silver setting. Each of these fossil shark teeth are unique and require hand setting like this in order to provide a truly special and individual piece.

Each pendant first starts with a top, gem, class tooth, selected for perfection.

The Palaeocarcharodon orientalis is arguably one of the most sought after Paleogene shark tooth. The striking similarity of these teeth, with those of the extant Great White undoubtedly feeds this collecting priority. Compared with Otodus (and most other sharks), this species' distribution is very limited in both time and space. This genus also serves as a flash-point in the Great white evolution debate.
