Figure 50: Micrograph of sample EIN-17. The white asterisk marks an enamel caries lesion, clearly identifiable with a reaction (orange staining) in the dentine underneath (Marsland and Browne 1975). It is not possible to determine whether or not the enamel surface etching and staining (black asterisk) is a smooth surface lesion, or diagenetic in origin.
