The calcitic prisms of the outer layer of the shell of Pinna nobilis, surrounded by thick organic walls, contain a soluble intracrystalline matrix. The structure and composition of the outer interprismatic walls are not well known. The current viewpoint is they are composed of an insoluble matrix. Another thick organic structure, the interlamellar sheet of the nacreous layer, is composed of insoluble and soluble matrices. The composition of two sets of soluble organic matrices from the calcitic… CONTINUE READING
