Diatoms and Radiolarians are among the most fascinating microscopic beings to observe under a microscope!
They have often artistic shapes that lead us to reflect upon spiritual matters and wonders of Nature. In particular they emanate hypnotic beauty, magic, mathematics, mystery, fun and solemnity at the same time.
More generally, not everyone knows that Phytoplankton (composed by freely floating microalgae, such as many Diatom species) contribute between 50 to 85 percent of the oxygen in Earth’s atmosphere, play a part in the regulation of atmospheric carbon dioxide and form an essential component of the marine food chain.
Owning Diatom Shop's state-of-the-art microscope slides that contain Diatoms or Radiolarians is like owning a piece of all these features, a piece of the art of who carefully prepared these handmade products, a piece of antique and modern, a piece of the small and big powerful Microcosm.

Diatom Shop's products require much accuracy, precision and time during (and before) their realization: although Diatom Lab works with the latest techniques, mountants and research microscopes, it doesn't differ much from a Nineteenth-century scientific laboratory company, so your purchase will help to keep this ancient craft still alive today!
