Diatoms are single cell marine plants found in fresh and salt waters of the earth.  Living diatoms weave microscopic shells. from the silica they extract from water. Fossilized remains of diatoms are mined as diatomaceous earth from "now" dry lake and ocean beds.  The mined material is ground to various grades for many uses, from toothpaste, to filter media for beer and swimming pools, and as a natural parasite control in pets and livestock.
