Buy a Shark Tooth Necklace Online
Buy a shark tooth necklace for the shark lover in your life.
Online at Amazon there is a great selection of shark tooth necklaces.
The tooth of the shark is much sought after by collectors, and fossilized shark teeth are often the only sign we have left of sharks that lived millions of years ago.
In earlier times, it was believed that shark's teeth were actually the petrified tongues of dragons and snakes.
They were thought to bring good luck to the wearer, and noblemen and royalty often wore a shark tooth necklace.
It wasn't until 1667 that Danish naturist Nicolaus Steno discovered that the so-called tongue stones were actually sharks teeth.

Sharks shed their teeth all the time.
As one falls out, the next in the row of teeth shifts into place.
While each type of shark has different numbers of teeth, and different number of rows of teeth, on average a shark has 60-90 teeth, which it will completely replace every tooth every 2 to 3 weeks.
The shape of any shark tooth is determined by its diet.
- Plankton-feeders such as the basking shark has teeth that are largely non-functional.
- Fish-eaters have needle-like sharp teeth.
- The mollusc and crustacean eaters have dense flat teeth designed for crushing.
The oldest fossilized shark tooth in existence can be carbon dated right back to the Late Ordovician period 450 million years ago.
