Tongue Stone

The oldest known records of fossilized shark teeth being found, are by Pliny the Elder, in which he believed that these triangular objects fell from the sky during lunar eclipses. According to Renaissance accounts, large, triangular fossil teeth often found embedded in rocky formations were once believed to be petrified tongues, called tongue stones or glossopetrae, of dragons and snakes. Glossopetrae, were commonly thought to be able to be a remedy or cure for various poisons and toxins, including helping in the treatment of snake bites. Due to this ingrained belief, many noblemen and royalty wore these "tongue stones" pendants or kept them in their pockets as good-luck charms.

Sharks are fishes whose skeleton is composed of cartilage rather than bony tissue. Their teeth, however, consist of resistant calcium phosphate minerals. Consequently, the fossil record of sharks largely comprises their teeth, which can be found in great variety and abundance all over the world, especially in Mesozoic and Cenozoic rocks. Given that an individual great white shark has more than 300 teeth in its jaws at any one time, and teeth are shed regularly during the life of the shark, it is not surprising that sharks' teeth can be abundant fossils. Fossil sharks' teeth were popularly known as tongue stones or 'glossopetrae ' before their origin became fully understood.

Glossopetrae were often considered in ancient times to have 'grown' naturally within the rock. This process, called vis-plastica, was once a popular explanation for the origin of fossils in general. It was thought that sharks' teeth could spontaneously generate themselves, as some teeth had smaller lateral projections, which were considered to be offspring still attached to their parents.
