How to Grow Bioluminescent Algae (Dinoflagellates) at Home by ScaryBunnyMan: 'Dinoflagellates are incredibly easy to grow at home, requiring as little care as a houseplant, except that these "plants" produce bright blue light when shaken at night.' http://biolum.eemb.ucsb.edu/organism/dinohome.html

Of course, there isn’t merely a sedimentary / biological story recorded here; structural geology plays an important role in our interpretation, too. These turbidites (rocks deposited by turbidity currents) were involved in Appalachian mountain-building. When ancestral Africa collided with ancestral North America in the orogeny that assembled Pangaea, these strata were squeezed. Pressure solution on a microscopic level imparted a cleavage that’s most pronounced in the shalier layers:
