The structure, morphology, composition, and organization of inorganic solids in the radula teeth of the limpet Patella vulgata have been studied by electron microscopy, electron diffraction, and e. d. X. a. of fractured, acid-treated, and sectioned tissue. Minerals first appear in the tooth base and comprise: amorphous and poorly crystalline granular, particulate, and sheet-like phases of variable composition (Fe, Si, P, Ca); irregular laths of crystalline goethite; and single crystals of… Expand
