Vibrant Red Jasper, Tiger's Eye, Haematite Trace Fossil Wall Piece

About

A huge banded iron formation from Port Hedland, Western Australia, formed around 2.9 billion years ago. Banded iron formations provide evidence of the earliest life on earth; simple, single celled bacteria inhabiting our primitive oceans. The oxygen produced by these bacteria mixed with iron, creating iron oxides which were deposited on the ocean floor. Over hundreds of millions of years, these iron oxides have here transformed into undulating layers of deep red jasper, shimmering hematite and vivid tiger's eye. An unusually large and vibrant example. Weight: 34 kg. Measures: Height 50 inches. Width 29 inches. Intact and unrestored with a metal frame for wall mounting.
