Caption: Conch shell, coloured X-ray. Conches are large marine gastropod molluscs (sea snails), with the mollusc living in the space inside the shell. The shell mainly comprises calcium carbonate, which is embedded on an organic scaffold. This shell is formed from secretions produced by the mollusc, and grows in size over time, following a spiral pattern. The X-ray shows this spiral pattern.
