Homepage > TORVOSAURUS GURNEYI - DATE FOR CAPTURE: 2018-03-20 - SOLD. RUSSIAN FEDERATION, 2018...
The teeth of Torvosaurus are a big rarity, which makes of them the "Holy Grail" of the fossils of Theropods of the Upper Jurassic of Portugal.
Getting lucky to catch a tooth in perfect condition, is virtually, even rarer to get...
This, unfortunately, is not at this level of perfection desired. Still, is nonetheless a very interesting tooth, to be part of the best collections.
I classify this tooth as being complete. Because it is not with the broken point, but because it has a accentuated natural wear. Probably an old discarded tooth, resulting from replacement by another new tooth.
Generally I like to keep mine, fossils in the matrix... In this tooth, I have finally decided to remove it completely from the matrix.
This kind of matrix, when it begins to dry and without humidity internally, opens wide and deep cracks. Inevitably, this can bring stability problems to the fossil. To avoid this situation and also because the most interesting part of the tooth is inserted inside the matrix, I chose to completely remove the tooth.
