Paleoproterozoic Stromatolite from CanadaFossil Description: This colorful stromatolite slab come from a remote location in the Northwest Territories of Canada. It is only accessible by floatplane, and so is not often visited.

The specimen has been hand-polished to a glassine finish on one side with fine carbide and diamond abrasive, a very labor-intensive job

Stromatolites have persisted to the modern day in such places as Shark Bay, Australia where they continue their billions of years old lifestyle. While this piece would make a fine present for any natural history buff, anyone who appreciates art would also be glad to get thus wonderful specimen as a gift.
