This superb tooth is restored onto original root structure and is in good condition. The enamel is in good condition with small wear on tip and small amount of peel on one side, while the original bone root stretches another 3 inches past through the matrix.
NOTE: Mosasaur teeth with real root structure are far more difficult to source than their composite cousins. Teeth are sold as either of the following from common to rare:
a. Glued onto bone not belonging to a mosasaur
b. Restored on the original root via colouring matching glues - professionally done
c. Original bone root and tooth not glued together
We ALWAYS differentiate and make this observation clear in our descriptions.
