This very interesting form of Brown Seaweed blooms from June to September in the Mediterranean Sea. It has a glowing white appearance that is due to the presence of calcium carbonate deposits on the outside of the algae in the form of aragonite crystals. These crystals are not known to spontaneously develop in the Mediterranean and are normally only formed in controlled conditions. The plant's ability to fix calcium to its outer structure in this unique and fascinating way has led researchers to see whether this mechanism could be transformed into a biological agent for the same purpose.
