Photo Gallery and Information. 1 pound lbs of fossil brachiopods. About 28 per pound. MYO.   Ancient rocks have yielded tiny fossil-like formations up to billion years old, researchers reported. But some experts are skeptical.

    This study specifically examined trace fossils in radiolarian chert and siliceous mudstone in the Ordovician System of Newfoundland, Canada ().The Early to Middle Ordovician time is known to have produced the most remarkable increase in biodiversity during the Phanerozoic Eon, with this event being designated as the Great Ordovician Biodiversification Event (GOBE) (Webby, ).Cited by: 1.

«7» CHAPTER II. THE LAURENTIAN ROCKS. As we descend in depth and time into the earth’s crust, after passing through nearly all the vast series of strata constituting the monuments of geological history, we at length reach the Eozoic or Laurentian rocks, deepest and oldest of all the formations known to the geologist, and more thoroughly altered or metamorphosed by heat.

Fossils from northern Quebec could be earliest evidence of life on Earth whether the structures were really fossils, and whether the rocks that contain them are as old as the study authors say. Fossils offer new candidate for earliest life They appear to be remnants of microbes from some 4 billion years ago, when Earth was very young These microscopic tubes of hematite — an ore of iron — come from rocks left over from ancient hydrothermal vents.
