Stromatolite is a type of fossilized algae dating back 3 billion years, often seen in mounds, columns or sheet-like formations of sedimentary rock. It is widely believed that the stone known as 'kambaba' or 'crocodile' jasper is a variety of stromatolite, though there is still some dispute in the mineralogical community regarding its classification. This unique stone features deep green tones and black orbicular patterns that resembles reptile skin.
