ineral calcite and a snakeskin-like diamond-patterned material. Each material [...] would be made from two synthetic materials to "micrometer resolution", with one acting as the bricks and the other the cement. The mother of pearl-type material was made from a microscopic structure that looks like a wall, while the calcite saw the materials swapped round so the cement was actually made up of the stiffer material, and the bricks the softer.

Opinion: Dreaming big with biomimetics: could future buildings be made with bone and eggshells?

Opinion: Dreaming big with biomimetics: could future buildings be made with bone and eggshells? | tecnext | Scoop.it
e. Although bones can break, it is relatively rare, and they have the benefit of being self-healing – another feature that engineers are trying to bring to biomimetic materials.

Like bone, eggshell is a composite material, but it is around 95% mineral and only 5% hydrated protein. Yet even that small amount of protein is enough to make eggshell very tough, considering its thinness – as most breakfast cooks will have noticed. The next challenge is to turn this knowledge into something solid.
