Mystery Fossil From Rock Show

Recommended Posts

Spoons

Quite some years back my late uncle purchased the attached fossil at a gem show here locally. Too be completely honest it looks kind of fake to me... but im might just have a untrained eye. My Aunt has taken the picture. I Couldn't possibly imagine it being from around here so I'm really not sure what age it could be or what location it is from. I'll try to acquire some more photos with a scale shortly. I know its a shot in the dark but any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Terribly fake enchodus jaw. The teeth are real, nothing else is. Enchodus is a fish, and these ones look like they are from Morocco. Eocene in age.

Very fake.

It looks like the tooth on the right (in picture) may be a fish tooth, but the rest are fabricated.

Thanks for the speedy response. I'm glad to know that at least the teeth are real if not from all the same specimen. Since its fake I wonder if i should really even tell her the truth.

It looks like everything is fake except the Enchodus libycus tooth on the right. 

The tooth is from the Late Maastrichtsian(?) of the Khouribga region in Morocco.

Not Eocene, Cretaceous.
