Stromatolite is a combination of several minerals including Jasper, Silicon Dioxide with impurities and iron oxides. Stromatolites are actually composed of the fossilized remains of colonies of blue and green algae which is called cyanobacteria. This is strange because the stones themselves are actually shades of brown and can resemble fossilized wood. It has been said by many scientists that the bacteria that makes up these Stromatolites are the earliest life form on Earth.
