Specimen: Stromatolite
Age: Dresser Formation, Pre-Cambrianmbrian
Location: North Pole Dome, Australia

Stromatolites are layered bio-chemical accretionary structures formed in shallow water by the trapping, binding and cementation of sedimentary grains by biofilms of micro-organisms. The Dresser Formation is dated to 3.49 billion years old and found in Australia. This formation is within the North Pole Dome and an extremely important site for scientists to study.

ACTUAL AS SEEN: The image shows the EXACT specimen you will receive. The specimen has been carefully hand selected and photographed. Measurements are as accurate as possible, though be aware measuring precise dimensions can be difficult from irregular shaped items. Whilst we portray colours as close to life-like as we can, colours will vary if taken in sunlight, indoors, from monitor to monitor and device to device. Once this specimen is sold, we will update this listing with new similar selected item, with a new photo and dimensions.
