Details: Dig for Rare Fossilized Shark Teeth In the Comfort of Your Own Home!
You will Receive a 1 Lb Bag of Fossil Rich Sediment that is Guaranteed to Contain at least 5 Prehistoric Fossilized Shark Teeth from the Eocene Era (58-62 million years ago).
The Sharks of the Eocene are similar in size to present day sharks and the Black Prehistoric Fossilized Teeth will typically vary in size from 1/8" up to 1/4". During your fossil hunt, you will be looking for teeth from sharks such as a prehistoric Great White, Tiger, Sand Tiger, Thresher, Snaggletooth, Silky, Dusky, Bull, or Lemon Shark.
In order to obtain the teeth, we drive over 500 miles to a "Top Secret" Limestone Mine in the Carolinas to collect the fossil rich sediment. The manager of the mine allows us to collect the fossil rich sediment on the days that the miners are not blasting with dynamite.
After digging 2,000 lbs of fossil rich sediment deep in the mine, we hoist the 5 gallon buckets 50 ft vertically with our ropes and climbing equipment.
When we return to the lab, we sift the sediment through a screen to make sure each customer is getting at least 5 teeth in every pound.
If the one pound of soil has at least 5 teeth in it, we do not add any more fossil teeth, but if we suspect that the sample of soil may be lacking teeth, we sprinkle in about 5 more teeth. After sampling every pound & occasionally sprinkling in teeth, we guarantee that every bag has a minimum of 5 teeth mixed in with the sediment.
Now that we bring the mine to you, simply brush away (or sift) the sediment and experience for yourself the thrill of discovery and the joy of fossil hunting.... just like a real paleontologist.
It's fun, it's educational, and best of all.... you get to keep all that you find.
PS: To help control any dust created from the fossil rich sediment, we place the sediment in a zip lock bag prior to placing it in the woven bag.
