Title: Iron mineralised teeth - Biominerals with bite

Caption: Chitons are molluscs with magnetite mineralised teeth. These animals nucleate and grow magnetite at ambient temperature and pressure and at physiological levels of pH. X-ray micro-computed tomography shows the onset of iron mineralisation (red) and the organic framework upon which the minerals form (green).
