I work at a fossil and mineral store and they own a 3.5 - 4.0 inch megalodon tooth (the basal of the tooth is broken slightly but its still beautiful) The serrations are smooth but visible, the bourlette is defined and a darker color than the enamel. However I have my doubts about buying it. They went to a fossil show in Colorado years ago and bought it from someone at a stand (none of my employees or boss are "fossil savvy".) I'm worried about spending $ on a fake megalodon tooth. I work this Saturday and will upload photos of me holding it from the case before I decide to buy it. I saw no seams on it from a possible mold but it just seems too cheap for the size. Its color is all black, which is a good sign but those can be easily faked too. I know, nobody can determine until I post a picture, However I did want to ask if there was any specific way people use to identify if a megalodon is fake or real? I heard megalodon teeth are cold to the touch and the plastics are slightly warmer.
