Artist's Description

Lake Clifton (South West of Western Australia) is one of the few places in the world where ‘living Rocks’ (Microbialites) grow. It is the largest ‘lake-bound’ microbialite reef in the southern hemisphere. Thrombolites are the most common form of microbialites in Lake Clifton. They are formed by a variety of Microorganisms. As the microorganisms photosynthesise, calcium carbonate is drawn out of the lime-enriched lake water to form Rock Like material.
The Lake Clifton Thrombolites represent modern day examples that were common some 600 million years ago.
