Abstract: Several pieces of objects recovered from the ocean floor near Bimini were examined by X-ray and analyzed petrographically. The objects consisted of calcite, brucite, a complex calcium aluminum hydrate, quartz, hydrogarnet, a little ettringite, and some sort of calcium alumina-ferrite. The objects are believed to be remnants of construction materials that were being transported by ship and subsequently came to rest (perhaps because of shipwreck) on the ocean floor. A copy of an article written for Nature by Mr. Wyman Harrison in which the findings of the examination mentioned above are cited is included as Appendix A.
