  • The majority of invertebrate skeletal tissues are composed of the most stable crystalline polymorphs of CaCO 3, calcite, and/or aragonite. A survey of the known biogenic minerals shows that approximately 80% are crystalline and 20% are amorphous(1). After gamma irradiation, fossil shells were reported to show electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectral lines, that were attributed to different paramagnetic centers (2,3), all related to the CO2− 3 molecule ion (4). For the CO2− center, the… CONTINUE READING
