Megalodon tooth necklace lost for over 110 years found in wreckage of Titanic

A lost necklace from the wreckage of the Titanic has been recovered more than 110 years after the iconic ship sank.

The discovery was made by the Guernsey-based firm Magellan, who recently revealed amazing scan footage of the wreckage.

"It's a megalodon tooth from a prehistoric shark, "said Richard Parkinson from Magellan.

"It has some gold jewellery built into it - it's incredible."

The necklace was spotted during a project to produce the first full digital scan of Titanic.

It is hoped that modern technology and artificial intelligence can help salvage the history of the necklace and maybe one day reunite it with its owner's living relatives.

An agreement between the UK and US prevents members of the public from taking artifacts from the site, more then 12,000 feet below the surface.

So for now, the necklace rests on the bottom of the ocean floor.
