Archaeocete Tooth

A fantastic find from the Eocene Green Cap formation near Harleyville SC. The detail on the enamel is fantastic with ridges and valleys that spider across the surface. There is a cool white mark on one side. Some of the root is missing, but I am very fortunate to find this tooth in this good of shape. The Green Cap is not known for preserving these teeth well and the teeth themselves are exceedingly rare.
