Domal Mesoproterozoic Stromatolites from MontanaDescription: This stromatolite section displays domal structure readily apparent to the eye. Some stromatolite formed in domes that can be anywhere from a few centimeters to many meters in height. Those in the Siyeh Limestone consist of well-developed, branched columns typically 1-5 cm across.

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.
