From the oceans to the metaverse
What are Metashells?
Metashells are a collection of six different Radiolarians specimens, generated in a blockchain and stored in a decentralised IPFS.
The Metashells are actual photographs of Radiolarians skeletons made through a microscope.
Radiolaria, also called Radiozoa, are single-celled marine eukaryotes (protozoa in the older classification) of a diameter of 0.1–0.2 mm. commonly found in marine environments as zooplankton throughout the global oceans. For the most part, Radiolarians specimens are free-living organisms that feed on various food sources in their environment. Radiolarians are one of the most extended ranging groups of fossil microorganisms.
