megalodon shark tooth. it's a fossil tooth, probably worth about $25-30 off a necklace. Larger ones are quite expensive.

We used to find heaps of them off the Beaumaris Moror Boat Club. They are not Megaladon teeth but I believe from a biggun not unlike a Mako. They are around 7 million years old. (I am led to believe.) The Beaumaris area is a fossil ground of some note.
