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 Sand Tiger Shark is one that has lasted for millons of years. Differentiating different species of sharks is usually done by locating and measuring their fins. The second dorsal fin and the anal fin of Carcharias are very large. In fact, they are about equal in size. The pectoral fins are triangular and only slightly larger than the dorsal fins. The teeth are very long and narrow with sharp points. The teeth are smooth with no ridges. The tail is one third of the entire body size.
