- Wander on a white sand beach beside by the warm, gentle Gulf of Mexico waters, in Venice, Florida and you will undoubtedly want to join locals and out-of-towners in their search for prehistoric, fossilized sharks teeth. The fossilized teeth, which range from smaller than the nail on your little finger to three or more inches long, are brown, grey or black. Fossilized sharks teeth can be attached to a gold or silver chain to create an attractive pendant necklace that will remind you of your delightful trip for years to come. Over the centuries, when an elderly shark expired, his remains would sink to the floor of the Gulf and be covered with sand. In time there would be little left but the teeth, which absorbed minerals and were eventually washed ashore by storms or left from the days when much of Florida was under water. People travel great distances to Venice to find shark teeth treasures.
