What changes have they made since the shells were buried in the ground for thousands of years? The geological crystallography book records that the physical properties of the aragonite structure are unstable and will eventually be converted into calcite. This is probably also a theory copied from abroad, and no one in the country has ever studied it. The crystal structure of the test substance can only be measured by an X-ray diffractometer, and geologists seem to not be familiar with crystallography. Now I plan to use X-ray diffraction to verify the correctness of this theory? It turns out that after a long geological time, not only did the aragonite not become calcite, but the grain grew up again - "single crystal" and even calcite decreased, proving that this theory is wrong. Carbon 14 (C14) is used to determine the geological age of some artifacts. Now using the electronic probe to detect the "double Chen weathering hole CC" of the ancient shell, it may be used as another method to determine the geological time.
