Correlative microscopy of the constituents of a dinosaur rib fossil and hosting mudstone: Implications on diagenesis and fossil preservation

Fig 5

HRTEM images and SAED patterns from the designated areas (yellow circled) in TEM micrographs of clay; mudstone ((A) and (B)); boundary ((C) and (D)); bone ((E) and (F)) regions. The parallel boundaries between 1M and 2M illites are arrowed in (B) and (F). The parallel boundary between illite and vermiculite is arrowed in (D). Note the highly disordered {00l} 2M lattices in (B) and (F), especially in (F). A = apatite, C = calcite.
