This Shark's tooth is just over 1.5 inches wide and cast in yellow bronze. I molded it from an actual fossel tooth found in the Tampa Bay area. This is a great medium size because it looks good on different belts. It works great if you want to dress it up on a 1.25 belt or go casual with jeans on a 1.5 belt. Yellow bronze is redder than brass but not as red as copper. It is the metal use for centuries to cast sculptures. It ages to a beautiful chocolate brown in the recesses.
