Shark Tooth Necklace — Hemipristis Serra Fossil Tooth | Foxy Fossils
A gorgeous prehistoric shark tooth necklace that is exquisite down to the last details. Our Hemi shark tooth necklace features an authentic piece of our prehistoric past that was hand-found and recovered by Foxy Fossils in Charleston, SC (legally, responsibly, conservatively, and ethically). This fossil tooth dates back 15-18 million years and is from the Hemipristis serra or “Hemi” shark (AKA “Snaggletooth”). The Hemipristis serra fossilized shark teeth are very distinct and are known for their unique shape and gnarly serrations. This is a highly sought-after tooth by fossil hunters and collectors worldwide.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do you use real fossils in each piece of jewelry?
YES!! Every piece of jewelry is handcrafted using real prehistoric fossils hand-collected by me. Your piece will contain a prehistoric piece of Charleston dating back hundreds of thousands to millions of years old. All fossils are legally & responsibly sourced.
Do you have to go out looking for fossils in order to create jewelry?
No!! Foxy Fossils is centered around my passion for all things coastal which includes conservation and respecting natural habitats and environments. The fossils used to create jewelry are a small portion of my own personal lifelong collection. No areas are depleted, destroyed, or altered in any way to create the jewelry pieces. I have collected many hundreds of thousands of shark teeth fossils (not including the hundreds of other types of fossils I have found) in my life so far.
Are your fossils ethically sourced?
YES!! Fossils, especially fossil shark teeth, are very abundant in the Lowcountry and can be found almost anywhere! Since some species of sharks can go through ~35,000 teeth in a lifetime (and multiply this by millions and millions of years), Foxy Fossils jewelry pieces do not deplete the natural supply of fossils nor do we alter or disturb the environment, animals or habitats that surround where I fossil hunt. Also, Casey is very keen on marine conservation and habitat protection and all fossils are legally and sustainably collected.
How old are the fossils?
In order for a shark tooth or remnant to be considered a fossil, it must be at least 10,000 years old. Most fossils used in the making of Foxy Fossils jewelry date back millions and millions of years in age. Each piece is so unique, but on average the shark teeth fossils we use date back approximately 5-20 million years ago. No sharks or animals are harmed in the collection or use of any fossils.
If I have a shark tooth I found, can it be made into a custom piece of jewelry?
YES!! I love creating custom jewelry pieces using a special fossil you have found. The possibilities are endless and I will work closely with you to ensure you are highly satisfied with the design! Send me an email at email@example.com or submit your custom order request via our contact form here.
Do you offer wholesale?
YES!! To inquire about a wholesale order, email Casey Garvin at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Got this to match the earrings and I love it!! I’m wearing a teal piece of history, and a beautiful animal. I especially love that by purchasing this I’m helping sharks 🦈
This is one of the rare instances when I wish I could provide more than five stars. Casey at Foxy Fossils is an amazing artisan and person. I have purchased several pieces (i.e., bracelets, lanyard) in the past from a local boutique and have always received many compliments on the items. I was searching for some new pieces, and Casey went above and beyond to work with me personally, ensuring I had the specimens and style(s) I was looking for. She even made sure to ship everything so I would have it before I had to leave the area. The customer service is exceptional, which I really appreciate. Now to the jewelry - these pieces are stunning!! Whether you are a local wanting to have a piece of paradise with you always, or a visitor wanting a special reminder of your time in the area, or just wanting to carry a piece of the ocean with you always - you can't go wrong here. There is something for everyone, and the items are made with much love and care and look exquisite on. I am all about jewelry that also doubles as adornment -having special meaning and memories - and these pieces do that and more. I love how everything is ethically sourced and how the company also gives back to the community/nature. If you are considering purchasing, don't hesitate. You won't be disappointed. These are one-of-a-kind that will last forever and you will want to always wear.
