Figure 59: SEM-BSE images of globular cavities in the enamel of EIN-22. These are roughly 10-30 micron large, some empty, some containing inclusions. The cavities are located relatively close to the dentino-enamel junction and are sometimes associated with cracks. In several places the dentine is heavily bioeroded up to the dentino-enamel junction, where smaller cavities can be seen just on the border (Figure 61). See also Figures 58, 60 and 61.
