5/8" Reef Shark Tooth

This was the best tooth of the trip. Even though its small, it’s a great find. They are very fragile and scarce to boot. So finding one in this pristine condition is a real treat. Consider this: at this location, I have found 2 6 inch megs, but only one of these. Kinda puts things in perspective, huh? Ok - maybe it’s a stretch to equate one of these teeth with a 6 inch meg, but you get my point. Its an occasion to find one of these.
