Bacteria (one of them is a bacterium) are very small organisms. Almost all bacteria are so tiny they can only be seen through a microscope. Bacteria are made up of one cell, so they are a kind of unicellular organism.

ESEM - Calcium sulfphate dihydrate.

The hydration of calcium sulphate hemihydrate (CaSO4.0,5H2O) leads to gypsum (calcium sulphate dihydrate – CaSO4.2H2O). It is a highly exothermic reaction which occurs by a dissolution/reprecipitation mechanism: when the hemihydrate is mixed with water, a fraction of it dissolves to give a saturated solution with respect to Ca2+ and SO4 2- ions, which is supersaturated with respect to calcium sulfphate dihydrate leading to nucleation and crystal growth. ESEM images taken from the hemihydrate hydration process. One can follow water adsorption to the hemihydrate at a 100% RH and the resulting needle-like crystals which result after water elimination.
