Did You Know…

Did you know that Georgia has a state fossil?

In 1976, the shark tooth was designated the official state fossil. Probably one of the most sought-after fossils by amateur collectors, the shark tooth is a relatively common fossil in the Georgia coastal plain. In fossil form, the shark tooth can be traced back 375,000,000 years. Fossilized shark teeth are found in a range of colors–from the more common blacks and grays to whites, browns, blues and reddish browns.
