Jaspilite is a Banded Iron Formation. It is also known as Banded Ironstone and is a distinctive unit of sedimentary rock that are almost always of Precambrian age. A typical Jaspilite consists of repeated, thin layers, of silver to black iron oxides, either Magnetite (Fe3O4) or Hematite (Fe2O3), alternating with bands of iron-poor shales and cherts, often red in color, such as Jasper.
Some of the oldest known rock formations, formed over 3,700 million years ago, include banded iron layers. Banded layers rich in iron were a common feature in sediments for much of the Earth’s early history but are now rare.
