Organic Remains Seen in Oolites After Conversion to Fluorite

Everett D. Glover


Conversion of carbonate grains to fluorite gives a microporous pseudomorph in which the contained organic material may be dyed and observed. Photographs show the application of this technique to in-situ observation of perforating algae and other organisms in Bahama oolites. Other possible applications are to ancient carbonates and to carbonates trapped by blue-green algae.
