A GEM lower jaw Notorhynchus tooth - a Sevengill Cow shark, from the Lee Creek mine, Aurora, No. Carolina.  This tooth has a beautiful tan color with a off white root. Incredible color and preservation. These are Miocene age, Pungo River Formation teeth. The PERFECT Notorhynchus tooth. An exceptional collector's tooth. Authenticity guaranteed. A very special Cow shark tooth!

LC601         Size: 1"

This catalog contains excellent shark teeth from one of the highly sought after Cow sharks, Notorhynchus primigenius, a Sevengill Cow shark. Notorhynchus teeth exhibit wide rectangular root that is topped with a saw-like row of six or more cusps. The Cow shark family is fairly rare and exceptional specimens are hard to locate. These teeth are Miocene age found in the Pungo River Formation (15 million years old) from the Lee Creek mine in No. Carolina and are among the finest known Miocene examples. This is the best group of Notorhynchus teeth that I have seen in a long time!
