Sumatra Fossil Shark Teeth

Sumatra Fossil Shark Teeth

Buried Treasure Fossils offers rare shark teeth for sale from Duri, Riau Province on the island of Sumatra, Indonesia. The location was known to few and only extensively collected by myself in the early 1990's. A highly unusual, fossiliferous middle Miocene deposit was uncovered during trench construction. The spoil banks have long since been taken back by lush vegetation. (Note - I had a chance to revisit this location in March 2001 after 10 years. It is completely overgrown, no fossils were located, and no new exposures are reported!) The matrix which contains the shark teeth and other fossils is very unique being composed of siderite conglomerate (iron red) with clay clasts. Several matrix fossils are included in the Sumatran shark teeth catalogs. The fossils come from the Telisa formation and were deposited in a shallow marine environment during the middle Miocene (approx. 15 million years ago.)

Note - this is a very unusual location and many on the shark teeth may be unique species to this exotic SE Asia locality. Authenticity guaranteed.
