1 1/4" Mako Shark Tooth

This is an absolute gem mako from Superpit. This is the best preserved tooth I've found from that location to date. The edges are razor sharp and translucent, the thin bourlette is 100% complete, the root is as perfect as can be, and the color is fantastic. Plus, its the position in the mouth between the anterior and lateral teeth - the little stubby tooth in between the big ones. This one is so pretty that it qualifies to be a necklace for my wife. I only find one or two teeth a year that measure up to that quality.
