This superb tooth is restored onto original root structure and is in fine condition. The tooth is huge size and enamel is in very good condition with small amount of peel on lower one side, while the original bone root stretches another 10cm below the tooth.
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.
