      You can get a replica of this tooth from Bone Clones for $64US.

      Absolutely amazing. Edges still look serrated.

      You know, I've been thinking about this particular specimen and I've had this nagging doubt. I never actually held this tooth. I wonder if it is a real fossil, or a gussied up version of the Bone Clones model. Is it really the source of the replica, or a replica itself? I don't really know, I just assumed and now I am questioning my recollection. I'll have to go back and visit sometime to confirm it's legit.

      DUDE! That is crazy huge! I just got through designing one of these to be worn as a neckpiece for a man. Heehee.... This is more gun-holster sized! Beautiful condition..

      Hi Jason,
      I found recently this tooth in a Chilean store, they told me it was found in Atacama desert. according to the image, its maybe possible to check (more or less, of course) type of shark and roughly how old is the tooth?

      Thanks and regards.
