A shark tooth is one of the numerous teeth of a shark. Sharks continually shed their teeth; some even shed 35,000 teeth in a lifetime. In order for these teeth to fossilize, they must sink to the seafloor and be quickly covered by sediment. These fossils are found in sedimentary rocks that are specifically marine-derived formed through compression of loose sands, muds, silts, and clays over thousands or millions of years.
To continue celebrating shark week, you can dive right in by wearing the +Beryll Mod. 51 Necklace. This one of a kind piece is handcrafted from prehistoric shark tooth, 925 sterling silver, and genuine leather – handcrafted in the USA. It’s the perfect accessory to show appreciation for this often-misunderstood predator without even having to get in the water!
