Stromatolite-fossil Algae-oldest Life Form-sahara, Morocco:
What a fun addition to your collection this might be. It is a stromatolite from the Sahara in Morocco. It is quite overwhelming to think of the Sahara in terms of a shallow sea, but shallow seas are generally the birthplace of stromatolites. It weighs about1 lb. 9.5 oz. and measures about 3.5 x 3.5 x 3.5". It was photographed both wet & dry in natural light.Photos 1 & 2 are a side by side comparison of the wet/dry photos.It might be a fun study item for your classrom, not only is it a study in fossils, but finding Morocco and the Sahara on the globe, might liven up the study for a younger group or maybe even an older group. How small the world has become, just a click away from another continent on the otherside of the world. Enjoy this with your friends, family and students.
