Summerville Megalodon Tooth

I love SC land teeth. They are my favorite because the colors are so great! This megalodon is no exception. The spot I found it has some crazy colored rocks so the teeth, when whole, are always gorgeous. There are so many colors in the enamel I can't even start to name them all. Even the bourlette is intact and marbled. The tip is there, and so are the serrations. The root isn't the greatest, but its complete and the crack doesn't go all the way through, thank goodness. Else, I would have found this in two pieces!
