Details

Selection of framed fossil shark teeth unearthed from the prehistoric 'plateau des phosphates' of Morocco, North Africa. A conserved variety of shark teeth set into a glass-faced frame for collectors and enthusiasts alike.


The extensive Oulad plateau is situated 54km to the south-east of Casablanca, the outcrop is mined by the Moroccan government, the Office Cherifién des Phosphates Group, the phosphate forms a continuous seam which stretches as far as the middle east and as far south as Niger, which holds the biggest natural deposits.


The fossil shark teeth and some bone vertebrae are all that survives from the cartilaginous fishes after the processes of fossilisation over the last 60 million years while forming the phosphate layers. The local Berber farmers collect the teeth and are the only people allowed to do so, being the indigenous farmers and the phosphate cutting through their farms.
