Lost Continent

It always amazes me what science is able to discover. In this case, it’s how they’re able to discover a piece of a lost continent under the Indian Ocean island of Mauritius through the discovery of a rock known as zircons. I’ll be the first to admit, I’ve never heard of it.

Anyway, the article is entitled “3-Billion-Year-Old ‘Lost Continent’ Lurking Under African Island” by Tia Ghose over at LiveScience. Reminds me, I need to go back and check out the book Roadside Geology of Missouri by Charles G. Spencer. Next stop, the library.

Sincerely-
