Abstract

Intracellular inclusions of amorphous Ba- and Sr-rich calcium carbonates – referred to as “micropearls”– have recently been detected in Lake Geneva. These micropearls are formed under conditions of pronounced Ba and Sr undersaturation in the lake waters. Their formation can be explained by the ability of certain microorganisms to preconcentrate these trace elements in tandem with a non-equilibrium solidsolution growing mechanism.
