Star Sand Grains, Southern Japan, Photo by Mouser Nerdbot: These star-shaped grains of sand look are the shells of microscopic organisms called foraminifera, which build intricate shells from the calcium carbonate they collect while drifting through the water. Their shells have settled on the seafloor for 500 million years, and are used by scientists to study the earth's changing climate. http://ocean.si.edu/ocean-photos/star-sand-grains-collected-southern-japan#  #Foraminifera
