Secret of high strength and toughness of abalone seashell

Among all inspiring bio-material, Abalone seashell has its unique characteristics of high strength and toughness. Though , there is the general trend in materials that some of the toughness have been compromised for the sake of increasing hardness and vice versa. This astonishing property of sea shell attracts material scientists to understand the root cause for this property. One of such enthusiast, Prof. Kalpana Katti at North Dakota State University unlocked these secret of these phenomenon lies in its microstructure.
