Large T. rex Tooth on Mammoth Ivory Pedestal

This gorgeous Tyrannosaurus rex tooth was discovered in Garfield County, Montana (Hell Creek Formation). The specimen is visually stunning, presented on a striking handcrafted fossil mammoth ivory pedestal.
Much of the enamel is outstanding - glossy and well-preserved, with pleasing beige and earthy brown colour. One edge (distal) is sharply serrated, with most serrations in place. On the other edge, serrations are only present for about 1 inch towards the tip. Substantial root etching is also apparent, as is common at this locality. The tip is in very good condition with only a small wear facet.
T.rex teeth of this large size and quality are truly special and scarcely seen in today's market.
