Shark's teeth are highly collected throughout the world. This particular specimen is of high quality and has a lovely shiny patina. The specimen is from an old collection and teeth of this quality and size are now becoming scarse.
The brick pits around Peterborough are highly fossiliferous and many of the finest fossils from these brick pits can be seen in museums throughout the world. This is a small but very well preserved tip of an Acrodus fin spine. The spine ran up the side of the fin to keep it rigid whilst swimming. Great detail, lovely drawer specimen.
From the South coast of England comes this small but very well preserved Eagle Ray tooth palate. These palates were used to crush shellfish etc during feeding. A nice starter piece or one for the drawers.
