25. Mineral

> Oldest:The Jack Hills Zircon

> Approximate Date:4.4 billion B.C.

> Location:Jack Hills, Australia
The oldest known materials of any kind on the planet are zircon crystals found in western Australia's Jack Hills region that are 4.4 billion years old. Elements in these zircons suggest they came from water-rich, granite-like rocks. The presence of quartz as well as the result of isotopic studies of the materials suggests that continental crust was forming very early in Earth's history and that tectonic activity was occurring as well.

Interesting that the 2 oldest media recordings came from France.  How did they ever surrender their publicity for achieving these feats?

Also, interesting that the oldest living tree resides in California.  I'll be sure to post when it burns down.

23. Jewelry

Found in Krapina, Croatia two years ago, the oldest jewelry is about 130,000 years old. This prehistoric bling, found at a Neanderthal site, is in the form of a necklace or a bracelet of eagle talons. The claws bear evidence of cut marks and polishing. Scientists believe the jewelry was used for ceremonial purposes.


Far more likely it was an attempt to impress the women-folk

/like Axe body spray, and just as effective

The oldest shoes in the world were actually found in the new world, in Fort Rock Cave in Oregon

They should compare the size of those shoes to footprints of Bigfoot. This could be the evidence we've been looking for this whole time.

I remember when Alta Vista, the dominant search engine at the time, said they were going to accept $$$ for prioritized search results.  Within the year they went from #1 to #basement.  This was about the time google showed up.

Helped clean out my grandparents house this past summer. Some of the spices had price stickers from Fay's on them.
