description  
The seas that existed some 50 million years ago around the London area were warm and tropical and contained many exotic animals which included sharks. Shark remains are generally rare due to the animal being mainly made up of cartlidge and only the vertebrae and teeth are normally preserved. This is a nodule of six articulated vertebrae that have been prepared out of a hard phosphatic nodule and are quite prominant in relief. Pieces such as this are rare and highly collectable by all shark and Sheppey collectors. A lovely addition to any collection.
