Caption: Light micrograph of a group of different species of fossil unicellular protozoa, Radiolaria sp. The inner part of the cell, containing the nucleus and part of the protoplasm, is divided from the rest of the body cell by a thin-walled porous central capsule. The radiolaria skeletons consist of strontium sulphate for the Achantaria species and silicates in the remaining radiolarians. The radiolaria skeletons are among nature's most beautiful structures. The sample shown here was collected on Mt Hillaby, Barbados, and the skeletons of these species are made up of silicates. Magnification: x30 at 35mm size.
