Biomimetic bricks inspired by mother of pearl:

Chinese chemists have developed a new nacre-like material which is stronger than natural nacre and most other composites.
Nacre, which is also known as mother of pearl, is a naturally occurring composite formed from calcium carbonate and biopolymers that create a brickwork structure. It is also nearly a thousand times stronger than any of its component parts and a major target for biomimetic synthesis.
