The PINK planet: World ' s oldest color pigments extracted from 1.1 billion-year- old rocks deep beneath the Sahara desert. It is the oldest colour ever seen in the geological record, and was produced by organisms inhabiting an ancient ocean that has long since vanished.

Earth may be known as the Blue Planet now, but evidence suggests that back in the day, it was probably pink.

Scientists have discovered the earliest evidence for a color appearing in nature: "bright pink pigments" that exist in an ancient kind of chlorophyll, said Dr. Nur Gueneli, a researcher with the Australian National University. Discovered inside rocks found under the Sahara Desert in West Africa, these pigments are believed to be over 1.1 billion years old, Interesting Engineeringreported.

Pigments found in 1.1bn-year- old rocks beneath the Sahara desert shed light on ‘major puzzle’ about early life.

While the chlorophyll we learn about in science classes today is green, this prehistoric version was used by marine bacteria that cast a "brilliant pink" color over the ocean all those years ago, Live Scienceexplained. That hue wouldn't be overtaken by greener algae for hundreds of millions of years.

That algae eventually turned into the basis for the wide variety of life that led to the evolution of large animals, including humans. But a billion years ago, "the planet belonged to the bacteria," Live Sciencereported.

The Oldest Tools Ever Found Outside of Africa .
For hundreds of thousands of years, small bands of ancient humans ranged across a sandy, hilly grassland. For hundreds of thousands of years, small bands of ancient humans ranged across a sandy, hilly grassland. They survived on the mammals around them—perhaps hunting them, perhaps scavenging for their carcasses—and their tools were rudimentary, razor-sharp blades formed from chipped stone. They lived in fear of the big cats and large predators who stalked their children.
