See the “snowman” only in the electron microscope – its size is ten times smaller than the thickness of a human hair (75 microns).

Today it is the smallest figure, take away the title of champion of its predecessor with a height of 10 microns.

In the human body silica is found in all tissues, playing an important role in the formation of collagen.
