Identification: Tooth fou
Reply with quote  #1 
I recently found this tooth whilst beachcombing on the north Cornwall coast - can anyone help identify it?

Hi
Would it be possible to post more pictures, some closer ones and ones of the root end.
It is hard to say from the one photo.
Thanks

Hi Lizw  -  sorry, but I don't think it is a fossil tooth. It looks like a tooth shaped piece of rock  -  a 'pseudofossil'.

regards.

A worn calcite crystal? It's doing a remarkable impression of a shark tooth missing the root though!
