Some rare colors on this tooth! While it looks like Bone Valley, this great white actually comes from southern Peru (Pisco formation, Early Pliocene). This is about as old as GW teeth get - the modern species evolved from C. hubbelli around the Early Pliocene (~ 5 million years ago).
Fossils are now illegal to export from Peru, this one was collected prior to 1990 under a Peruvian government permit. As ethical collectors, please do your due diligence to verify any Peruvian fossils you're interested in were exported prior to the ban. I respect any country's decision to protect their natural heritage in such a manner.
