Long before our current continents broke apart and took their present shape, several giant landmasses called our prehistoric planet dominated supercontinents.
When Rodinia's supercontinent broke apart, the remaining pieces were named Baltica, Laurentia, Siberia, and the largest chunk -- about one-fifth of the Earth's surface -- was called by geologists GONDWANA. Most of what is now Africa, South America, the Middle East, the Indian Subcontinent, and Antarctica formed Gondwana about 550 million years ago until the Jurassic period 180 million years ago.
Gondwana saw the first plants begin to form, the first insects, the first trees, the first amphibians, and the beginning of the reign of dinosaurs by the Jurassic period. A fascinating time on planet Earth with lots and lots of "firsts." OHM celebrates this era of prehistory explosion of life on land with a beautiful glass bead called GONDWANA.
You can see the ripples of life trickling over the land and, with them, the first creatures crawling from the sea to fill their places in the animal kingdom. Celebrate all of your important "firsts" with GONDWANA on your bracelet!
