Stromatolite addition to rock garden

Peter with the Stromatolite Marble

Wayne DeBrusk of Shuniah Township, near Thunder Bay, has donated a wonderful example of stromatolitic limestone to the Earth Sciences museum. Originally from the Eaglehead Lake area north of Thunder Bay, this boulder was found in a gravel pit. "Strom," as Wayne calls it, is now installed in our rock garden.
