Scientists believe that thrombolites were formed over 3,500 million years ago and are the earliest forms of life on earth.

Thrombolites are created by single-celled bacteria who deposit and bind layers of sedimentary grains that slowly grow into rounded rocks. These ancient fossils are found only in Flower's Cove in Newfoundland, and Western Australia.
