The prisms in the shell of Mytilus edulis Linné are calcite needles. Their small size and their thin conchiolin cases distinguish them from the prisms of many other species of mollusks. These Mytilus prisms have been studied with the electron microscope. The material consisted of positive replicas of surfaces of the prismatic layer, etched with chelating agents, and of preparations of tubular cases from decalcified prisms which were compared with the conchiolin from decalcified mother-of-pearl… Expand
The structure of the wall plate in chthamalus depressus (poli)
TLDR
Estimates are made of the expected size of the smaller bands that would seem to be endogenously determined by processes taking place within an intermoult period of extreme hypobiotic Chthamalus depressus (Poli). Expand
Characteristics of biogenic calcite in the prismatic layer of a pearl oyster, Pinctada fucata.
TLDR
Transmission electron microscopy examination of the fine structure of the calcite prism in the outer layer of a pearl oyster revealed that the domain consists of sub-grains of a few hundred nanometers divided by small-angle grain boundaries, which are probably the origin of the gradual change of the crystal orientation inside the domains.

The influence of the periostracum on the shell structure of bivalve molluscs
TLDR
It is suggested that calcium carbonate deposition begins so close to the margin that all the periostracal material has not polymerised by the time the first crystals of calcium carbonates are precipitated. Expand
Crystalline organization of the fibrous prismatic calcitic layer of the Mediterranean mussel Mytilus galloprovincialis
The outer layer of the shell of members of the genus Mytilus is made of long, slender fibres of calcite (some 1–2 mm wide and hundreds of mm long), which reach the internal surface of the shell at anExpand
The formation and growth of the prismatic layer ofPinctada radiata
TLDR
The formation of a prism is similar to that observed in the formation of nacre, namely, the elaboration of an electron-dense lamella that serves as the internal boundary of the future prism. Expand
On ultrastructure of the trabeculae in the interlamellar membranes of nacre conchiolin of the Nautilus shell.
The ultrastructure of the interlamellar and intercrystalline membranes of nacre conchiolin of Nautilus has been studied on shadow-cast preparations and on ultrathin sections after various fixationExpand
Structure, crystallography, and morphogenesis of the cryptic shell of the terrestrial slug Limax maximus (Mollusca, gastropoda)
The structure and crystallography of the internal shell of the pulmonate gastropod slug Limax maximus were studied at the levels of light and scanning electron microscopy, revealing patterns of shellExpand
ENVIRONMENTAL AND BIOLOGICAL CONTROLS ON BIVALVE SHELL MINERALOGY
TLDR
Bivalves lay down two forms of calcium carbonate in their shells, aragonite and calcite, which are found in superfamilies belonging to the subclass Pterio‐morphia and within a superfamily shell structure and mineralogy are very constant. Expand
Initial formation of calcite crystals in the thin prismatic layer with the periostracum of Pinctada fucata.
TLDR
The soft prismatic layer with transparent color in the tip of the fresh shell of Pinctada fucata was picked up to observe the early calcification phase and many aggregated small particles consisting of bassanite crystals were observed in the periostracum suggesting the possibility that not only organic sulfate but also inorganic sulfates exist in the Prismatic layer.

Characterization of the Complex Matrix of the Mytilus Edulis Shell and the Implications for Biomimetic Ceramics
The macromolecular matrix present in the composite shell of the blue mussel, Mytilus edulis , accounts for less than 1% of the shell by weight but is theorized to play a significant role inExpand
