Shark Tooth Necklace with Apatite Accents
Fun factoids about shark teeth: - they aren’t attached to gums and don’t have roots like our human teeth - they typically lose about one tooth a week - they average about 15 rows of teeth per jaw. Bull sharks have 50 rows! - they replace the lost tooth within a day of losing it. It’s arranged like a conveyor belt.. - a megalodon tooth can grow up to 7 inches long and can weigh up to a pound! - they’re found as beach treasures mostly in Florida - they make really cool jewelry pieces!
This necklace is made with an Oceanic White Tip Shark which are pelagic creatures found off shore here in Hawaii. The necklace measures 18" and is made with naturally colored apatite and 14k goldfill material and a magnetic clasp.
