A rock sample recovered nearly eight years ago from Champua in Odisha’s Kendujhar district has put India at the front line of geographical research on the planet. Geologists from the University of Calcutta and Curtin University, Malaysia, alongside analysts from the Chinese Academy of Geological Sciences, Beijing, made the disclosure, which was distributed a week ago in the diary Scientific Reports.

The only instance of zircon older than this discovery was the one found in Jack Hill, Western Australia, which was 4,400 million years of age and is the oldest known rock sample. Be that as it may, the zircon for this situation was from transformed sedimentary shake, not at all like the Singhbhum one, which was framed from magma.
