1.9" Otodus Shark Tooth Fossil in Rock with Geode - Eocene

This is a large fossil tooth of the extinct, giant mackerel shark, Otodus obliquus. It's Eocene in age, approximately 54 million years old and comes from the phosphate deposits in the Oulad Abdoun Basin of Morocco. This tooth is still embedded in the natural rock it was found in, as well as multiple geode cavities that can be found along the edge of the specimen. The crystals within this geode are very likely calcite. There are several repairs in the tooth.

It comes with an acrylic display stand.

Otodus is an extinct mackerel (Lamniformes) shark that lived during the Eocene, approximately 54 million years ago. This is the same family of sharks that includes the Great White and the largest shark ever known, the Megalodon. These teeth are collected during phosphate mining operations near Khouribga, Morocco. While Otodus teeth are common fossils at these mines, large, good quality specimens are hard to find since they are often destroyed by the mining equipment.
