There are a few people out there who offer cleaned diatoms for sale at what i would call modest prices for the effort involved.

I guess it is possible, but I would say that it is not a get rich quick scheme by any means.

Diatoms are often used to test resolution.

The 8 form test plate on this page is a good one.

Literally everything I know about collecting, cleaning and mounting diatoms is contained in this thread, that was the entire purpose of posting it.

I don't know what else I can tell you, and I certainly don't know anything about the viability of a business involving the selling of diatoms in China.

I wish you well.
