Control of reaction concentrations, time and temperature leads to the formation of different crystal forms, of either calcite or aragonite, plus a range of different crystal shapes.
Correlation of SEM observations, EDX values, and XRD results indicate that as the endocarp develops, a silica (opal) framework is constructed with concurrent deposition of aragonite.
For calcite and aragonite, three or four samples were set at all measurement points.
coerulea is its blue, hard, crystalline aragonite skeleton, because Heliopora is more closely related to soft coral species (Octocorallia) than to hard coral species (Hexacorallia).
The measurements of ODD, IDD and the diameter of the upper point of the inner layer of the aragonite nacre (UND) were compared using ANOVA and ranked with Tukey honestly significant difference.

Calcified seashells provide an ideal test to answer this question, as aragonite and calcite -- the minerals making up seashells -- also form non-biologically in the ocean.
In Experiments 1-3, pC[O.sub.2] and [OMEGA]AF (saturation state of aragonite) were estimated based on empirical measurements of pH and TA by using CO2Sys 2.1 (Pierrot et al., 2006).
