  1. very cool. do you know much about diatoms?

  2. Rajini Rao says:

    Albert Tremblay , yes! Diatomaceous structures are made up of mineral like stuff, no?

  3. wiki: “Diatomaceous earth consists of fossilized remains of diatoms.”

    yahoo: “Diatoms and phytoplankton (photosynthetic plankton) in general are grazed on like grass is on land.”

    There is a ted talk about growing diatoms to feed the ecology.

    Like grass on the land..I like that analogy, Albert Tremblay ! But these crystals are quite soft and will probably disintegrate to the touch..just protein with some lipid (sort of like fat) ­čÖé
