This is a beautiful example of a Carcharodontosaurus Tooth. The enamel is lustrous and a dark reddish brown color (one of the nicer colorations for fossils from the Kem Kem Basin). The serrations are somewhat worn down, but still evident. The tip is in tact with no restoration but appears to have some normal enamel wear and tear (chipping). This is a very aesthetically pleasing specimen for any collection!

This cluster consists of two main fluorite crystals that intersect, both showing light blue, pastel purple and soft yellow hues. While the terminations and facets do have some minor chipping, the layered "phantoms" of color still make this a high-quality addition to any collection.
