Glittering like Gold

These delicate stoneworts glitter in the sunlight, like underwater planets. They look so sparkly! Though they resemble plants, they're considered to be a type of algae, with encrustations of calcium carbonate on their branchlets.

 Some of them smell really skunky, and may also be known as muskgrass. This is what it looks like when taken out of the water.
