Stromatolite Rocks ~ Small

I have photographed pebbles, slices and rinds of some of the smaller sized rocks that contain Stromatolites.    I think these pictures help to understand my findings.   Plus the designs and surfaces are interesting to look at.    Please be sure to look at the fully enlarged pictures to see the details.

The first picture is a panorama I took from a small rock slice and is a total of eleven shots I blended/stitched in Photoshop.   It is approximately 100X normal size, and may or may not be Collenia undosa.   If it is, it’s markedly different than that found in Minnesota’s Mary Ellen Jasper MIne.   I am presenting it only because I have not received any good suggestions about what it could be.  Please scroll through the enlarged size to view it all.

This page contains quite a variety and I eventually plan on showing all thin-slice microfossil shots of each example.   This is quite an undertaking as you can imagine, plus I am always finding new Stromatolites on my property.   The more I become familiar with these beautiful fossils,  the easier they are to spot.   If you don’t recognize a picture as a Stromatolite, it might be a Banded Iron Formation, or “BIF.”

Everything shown has been inspected via scope and has passed all of my requirements for it to be a “Strom.”   I’m not sure I could ever adequately describe to someone what those baselines are, but I know them when I see them.   Why Stromatolites have never been found in my area I don’t know.   They have to be elsewhere if they are here.   The only thing I can conclude from this phenomena is the following:

No one washes off rocks to find the Stroms, and no one cuts them open after washing!

As usual, let me know if you know the name of a specific item, or if you think it isn’t a Strom.
