Also known as oolites or ooliths, these little geologic Gobstoppers form in shallow, supersaturated, agitated water far from continental sediment sources.

They start as a tiny grain of calcium carbonate, usually calcite or aragonite. As they roll and tumble in the waves, they gradually build up layer after layer of chemically precipitated calcium carbonate.

    I'd be interested to know the width of the dish as well as the diameter of an average Gobstopper. Ok, 9 cm dish!

Where in the World is this GigaPan?

Sorry, this gigapan has no location information.
