SEM micrographs of embedded and polished cross sections of 1921 (A) and 2012 (B) S. subula shells and 1910 (C) and 2012 (D) C. inflexa shells. No difference between the organisation or packing of the aragonite nanofibers can be observed in either species despite significantly higher density of historical samples of C. inflexa.
