An ultra rare, top quality 5-3/16" Sharktooth Hill Megalodon tooth found in the Round Mountain Silt near Bakersfield, California. A location that produces very few Megalodon teeth and one of the toughest Megs to locate. A June 2020 Fossil of the Month. Highest quality enamel with a great light tan color with charcoal & orange highlights. There is some light mineralization on the right (display side) and a small scatter on the non-display side. Typical for many Sharktooth Hill Megs. The bourlette is composed of the dentin layer. The serrations are essentially complete with a great tip serration - incredible serrations for a BIG Sharktooth Hill Meg tooth. The root is nicely articulated and complete. Also note the large groove on the root ends - a Miocene trait. This is a middle Miocene Meg - very unique! 100% natural. No repair or restoration. You will not see these middle Miocene Sharktooth Hill Megs from Bakersfield, California very often. One of the rarest Megs! Authenticity guaranteed. An incredible collector piece that came out of a 25 year old old collection!
