Products description

Here is a nice Inzeria intia stromatolite plate from the Bitter Springs Formation in Australia. The Bitter Springs Formation is actually not famous for its magnificent stromatolites but for some of its silicified rocks. Various single celled microfossils from the Proterozoic were directly detected in these Cherts *. (* “flint” or silica slates)
In May 1968, Willian Schopf describes 30 species and 24 genera from the Bitter Springs Biota, in particular several fossil eukaryotes. Schopf goes into the special "biodiversity" which distinguishes the Bitter Springs Biota from the much older Gunflint Biota.
This stromatolite plate shows an extraordinary play of colors and comes from a particularly interesting locality.
