3" Mako Shark Tooth

Every once in a while, I come across a true rarity. A fossil representative of the splendor of nature. This is one of those fossils. A true 3 inch mako. Its MASSIVE. Period. They don't get much bigger than this. The biggest I ever saw was 3 1/4 inches long. And this tooth, as massive as it is, is still in fantastic condition. It has a great root, and the blade is razor sharp. The colors are fantastic, and its chatoyant - that is, when you look at it at different angles, it is a different color. What a fantastic specimen!
