Data from: Polarimetry of Pinctada fucata nacre indicates myostracal layer interrupts nacre structureRebecca A. Metzler, Joshua A. Jones, Anthony J. D'Addario & Enrique J. Galvez
The inner layer of many bivalve and gastropod molluscs consists of iridescent nacre, a material that is structured like a brick wall with bricks consisting of crystalline aragonite and mortar of organic molecules. Myostracal layers formed during shell growth at the point of muscle attachment to the shell can be found interspersed within the nacre structure. Little has been done to examine the effect the myostracal layer has on subsequent nacre structure. Here we present...
