Lee Creek Fossil Shark Teeth - Shark Tooth Listing By Species

Buried Treasure Fossils offers incredible Lee Creek fossils for sale including incredible fossil shark teeth, Chubutensis, and Megalodon teeth. The PCS (formerly Texasgulf) Lee Creek phosphate mine is a well known fossil bearing locality located near Aurora, North Carolina. The shark teeth from Lee Creek are highly prized by collectors due to their exceptional preservation and excellent coloration. Being a land site, the detail and preservation exhibited by these shark teeth are nothing less than outstanding - some of the finest marine fossils known. The fossil bearing layers which reside up to 130 feet beneath the surface are represented by the Pungo River Formation (Miocene – 15 million years ago) and the Yorktown Formation (Pliocene – 4.5 million years ago). The fossil teeth are found in huge spoil heaps inside the mining area. The Smithsonian Institute’s National Museum of Natural History scientists have extensively collected and studied this site which represents one of the richest and best- known Miocene - Pliocene fossil deposits in the world. Authenticity guaranteed. Have a look.

Note - Unfortunately, the Lee Creek mine has been shut down to collecting since 2008. The Lee Creek fossils must now be sourced from old collections. This situation is an incredible disappointment to many collectors. However, top quality Lee Creek fossils are still available in limited supply. BTFossils provides quality that you can trust.
