Figure 43: Micrograph of sample CDU-15, viewed in polarized light, showing that some of the fungal fruiting bodies (arrows) also seen in Figure 42, are lined with a bright white birefringent material. No analyses were carried out but it is likely that this is calcite, with some compounds containing iron and/or manganese, as seen for sample EIN-13 (Figures 30, 31, 32) and EIN-10 (Figures 27, 28, 29).
