Using spectroscopic techniques including Raman and XANES, 3.4 billion year old microfossils from Western Australia’s Strelley Pool formation have been shown to be chemically similar to modern bacteria. This all but confirms the biological origins of the fossils and ranks them among the world’s oldest.
