Fossilized Wire Wrapped Sharks Tooth Pendant
Sharks have inhabited this planet for more than 400 million years. Their skeletons are composed of cartilage, so most of the remains we have of pre-historic sharks are their bony teeth. These are found in abundance in some areas because sharks lose teeth and grow new ones throughout their lives.
Sharks teeth are a symbol of status and power with a competitive spirit.
The bony teeth of sharks fossilize well and these are common in some environments. It takes approximately 10,000 years after the shark has lost the tooth and it has been buried in sediment to become a fossil.
