7.4" Realistic, Carved Labradorite Megalodon Tooth - Replica

This is a 7.4" long, replica Megalodon tooth which has been laser carved from a solid piece of natural, labradorite. The enamel portion of the tooth has been had polished to a glossy finish, whereas the bourrelet (dental band) and root were left rough adding to the realistic look. This replica has been based on a 3D scan of a real, fossil Megalodon tooth and scaled up to the size of the largest known Megalodon tooth.

These replica teeth are all carved from natural stone, so while the shape & size is identical the exact patterning will vary.

Labradorite is a feldspar mineral that is most often found in mafic igneous rocks. Some specimens of labradorite exhibit what is called a "schiller effect", which is a strong play of iridescent blue, green, red, orange, and yellow colors. Labradorite is so well known for these spectacular displays of color that the phenomenon is known as "labradorescence." Specimens with high quality labradorescence are often polished and used as gemstones.

The labradorescence is not caused by the colors being reflected on the surface of the specimen. Instead, light enters the stone, hits a twinning crystal lattice surface within the stone, and reflects from it. The color seen is the color of light reflected from that twinning surface. Different twinning surfaces within the stone reflect different colors of light. Light reflecting from different twinning surfaces in various parts of the stone can give the stone a multi-colored appearance.

Labradorite is named after where it was first found in Labrador, Canada. Today, the most prolific deposits and the source of most commercially available labradorite occur in Madagascar and Russia.
