A Top Quality, 5-3/8" ULTRA RARE Caribbean Megalodon tooth - an upper jaw tooth. A November Fossil of the Month offering. This Megalodon tooth has an incredible rich tan colored crown with interesting light charcoal gray patterning. Highest quality enamel with no hydration cracks and no peel. Exceptional color! The bourlette is complete. The serrations are razor sharp and 100% complete including a big tip serration. Exceptional serrations for a big Meg! The root is an excellent creamy tan color with no hydration cracks. An extra wide root (4-1/4" wide). Note - the bourlette and top of the root were damaged and professionally restored. Otherwise, a perfect tooth. No saw cuts on this tooth. This Megalodon was found in a limestone quarry in the Caribbean (Miocene age). One of finest examples of an ultra rare Caribbean Megalodon tooth that I have seen considering the shape, color, and preservation. An exceptional rare collector's Megalodon tooth! Museum Quality Megalodon. Note - The limestone is sawed into thin blocks for extraction which totally destroys 99%+ of these Megalodon teeth. Best of the BEST!
