Since the coral polyps live in symbiosis with the alge that provides them with
oxygen, etc., can it be considered a mineral from stone,(the lattices the polyps
create), or plant-like. I guess the actual answer is how fine the particles
are; whether the molecules are smaller than a water molecule. So, is coral
calcium a hydrophillic or hydrophobic mineral?
