Obsidian is a type of naturally-occurring glass formed as an extrusive igneous rock.  It is produced when felsic lava erupted from a volcano, cools rapidly through the glass transition temperature and freezes without sufficient time for Crystal growth.  Because of the lack of Crystal structure, Obsidian blade edges can reach almost molecular thinness, leading to its ancient use of projectile points (arrow heads), and its modern use as surgical scalpel blades.

Marble is a metamorphic rock consisting of Limestone but mostly composed of Calcite. It is used extensively for sculpture, building materials and has many decorative uses. The pure white Marble is probably the most common form known, but the characteristic swirls and veins of many colored Marble varieties are usually due to various mineral impurities such as Clay, Silt, Sand, Iron Oxides or Chert.

Stromatolites are one of the oldest bacterial microfossils known. The Peruvian Stromatolites are from the lower Proterozic period some 2.3 billion years. They are from the Eastern Andes, Bolivia, South America.  Stromatolites are actually mounds of mud that have been preserved. Very few will actually contain the fossilized microbes that built them. They accumulate because blue- green algae produces a sticky film that catches mud and silt, in turn forming layers. In time theses layer build up to form mounds.
