Rare 10" Edestus Fossil Coal Shark Tooth Jaw Illinois Gold Pyrite Teeth :
This is an extremely rare fossil. This Edestus heinrichi jaw section was recovered hundreds of feet below ground in a coal mine in Southern Illinois. It is Pennsylvanian in age and is in excellent condition. Most of the fossil's surface including the teeth are covered in gold pyrite. It would not be difficult to remove the pyrite to fully expose the teeth. This specimen was broken in 3 places during its extraction and glued back together. I have owned many Edestus fossils and this is by far the best example from my collection. It is superior. Thank you for looking.
This fossil measures 10.5inches in length and 2.55 inches in width.
