What do you mean? What are those earthlings doing now?
They found new fossils on Earth that were formed by permineralization
Wait! What is a fossil? What is permineralization?
A fossil is an organism preserved in petrified form. Permineralization is a process that creates a fossil
What do you mean? How does permineralization work?
Well, you see, in permineralization the bones or plant materials or shells mix with the mineral matter from the soil, lake or ocean. In some cases, the replacement happens in a way that each atom is replaced one by one. The result is a bone that looks like a rock. It is so cool!
Wow, that is weird, not sure I get it
Do you understand what I mean?
What you are trying to say is that for example a bone could be fossilized when it is buried when minerals seep into the organic tissue and mineral replace it and form into a crystal. Is that right? It then looks like a crystal cast.
But that means, they can find our ancestors on Earth! They have become crystals! That is amazing!
I know permineralization, but how did we change colors and places?
