Unknown Pennsylvanian Stark Shale Tooth or Pareidolia?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Recently going through some of my Stark Shale material and prepping some of it and this little specimen has me wondering if it’s a tooth. It’s probably pareidolia but the lip at the bottom appears to have a sort of smoothness to it unlike the two protrusions. I'm not sure if the honeycombed structure is bone or cartilage but I’m trying to decide if I should prep it any further and any ideas or thoughts would be appreciated.

Looks like cartilage to me. Of what I have no idea.

Not a tooth. Cartilage is possible

@erose Thanks, me either.


@jdp Thanks for weighing in.


I've decided not to prep it further. I think it's probably just a small bit of cartilage.
