A full two-thirds of the over five-thousand named minerals on Earth are made directly or indirectly from biological activity. Biological minerals (known as biominerals) have wide-ranging purposes and are found in all six biological kingdoms. Learn about the wonderful world of microbial biominerals, how you might identify them in the wild, and their role in the environment.
