Abyssal marine sediments

Abyssal marine sediments, originally laid down in the mid-Pacific 200 to 300 million years ago then ferried by currents in the Earth's mantle and plastered against the edge of the ancient Australian continental raft. In the enormous heat and pressure of this process they crumpled like old newspaper. Modern wave erosion has re-exposed these metasediments. Wellington Rock, Nambucca Heads, New South Wales, Australia

Petroglyph on greenstone, granite of Archaean age, of unknown origin

Petroglyph on greenstone, granite of Archaean age, of unknown origin. Aboriginal owners disclaim authorship and say the designs were done by legendary spirits. Such abstract forms are typical of NW Australia's desert rock art and are among Australia's oldest rock art. The granite is an outcrop of a greenstone batholith, part of the buoyant greenstone raft that coalesced to form the Pilbara Block foundations over three billion years ago.
. Eastern Pilbara, Western Australia
