Stromatolite
STROMATOLITES (/stroʊˈmætəlaɪts, strə-/ ) or STROMATOLITHS (from Greek στρῶμα _strōma_ "layer, stratum" (GEN στρώματος _stromatos_), and λίθος _lithos_ "rock") are layered bio-chemical accretionary structures formed in shallow water by the trapping, binding and cementation of sedimentary grains by biofilms (microbial mats ) of microorganisms , especially cyanobacteria . Fossilized stromatolites provide ancient records of life on Earth by these remains, some of which may date from 3.7 billion years ago. Lichen stromatolites are a proposed mechanism of formation of some kinds of layered rock structure that are formed above water, where rock meets air, by repeated colonization of the rock by endolithic lichens
