@belemniten Hi Sebastian. I'll go along with Kevin in saying you could use acetone to repair that tooth. I'm sure that if you do it carefully it would look much better in the end. Nice acquisitions, by the way.

Recently you could find "many" bones and teeth in a "Bonebed" in a quarry near Buttenheim in Germany. Too bad I was a bit too late to search in this Bonebed. As I was there it was still possible to find something but the layer was buried under about 1 meter dirt. So I couldn't really find something there.

All bones and teeth come from the Toarcian. 

 

This thread of @Kasia inspired me to buy some teeth and bones from there too. So thank you for the inspiration :D

 

Here are my acquirements:

 

I bought three Steneosaurus (crocodile) teeth:

 

The first one is about 1. 3 cm long:

Detailed:

The next one is a big one with a length of 2 cm. This one was found in Altdorf:

The last one is damaged and small (0.8 cm long)

Beside of these Croc teeth I also bought some Ichthyosaur material from there:

 

A 1.1 cm long tooth which could be quite nice if someone didn't glued it that bad...

I am not sure what I will do with this one because there seems to be another tooth in the matrix and I will maybe try to break it and glue it a bit better. Too bad the teeth are extremely fragile so I am not sure what I will do... 

 

And another small Ichthyosaur tooth with a length of 0.6 cm:

And last but not least three small Ichthyosaur vertebrae:

All three are a bit bigger than 2 cm. 

 

All in all I have to say that I am quite satisfied with my purchase expecially because I didn't had to pay too much money for them.

Thanks for viewing :)

 

 

Very nice teeth - not to mention the quality of pictures :D, much superior to mine. Congrats on the purchase :dinothumb:

Thank you both :fistbump: I tried it with acetone but I think the matrix was glued at many more places as I expected. And I think I wasnt carefully enough so now the tooth is broken in three pieces ... I hope that I can glue it back together :mellow:

Always love seeing your reptile bones and teeth! Germany is certainly high on my list of places to go fossil hunting.
