This 830-million-year-old crystal might contain life. And we're about to open it

From lemons to ham, salt is a handy food preservative. But researchers studying some really old salt crystals found them preserving something else — evidence of life.

"There are little cubes of the original liquid from which that salt grew. And the surprise for us is that we also saw shapes that are consistent with what we would expect from microorganisms," said Kathy Benison, a geologist at West Virginia University. "And they could be still surviving within that 830-million-year-old preserved microhabitat."

...........

Benison suspects that if there are in fact microorganisms in the crystal, they could be alive in a dormant state. The halite would need to be opened in order to confirm that this is in fact organic matter, and that it is still alive.

While cracking into that crystal might seem a bold choice — we're currently battling a global pandemic caused by microscopic viruses, after all — Benison plans to do just that. But she said there was no need to worry.

"It does sound like a really bad B-movie, but there is a lot of detailed work that's been going on for years to try to figure out how to do that in the safest possible way," she said.
It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man.

No interest in the crystal of doom? This is classic GLP!

Kind of like the detailed work to ensure a virus couldn't escape a bio lab? That's going well, I can't wait to see what happens when this one gets out. On the bright side we can always hope the crystal contains the zombie virus, we desperately need a zombie apocalypse.

I've seen many crystal with liquid in them, they're rare in nature but they do exist and most of those are sitting in collections as oddities. The possibility that a few of them contain remnants of simple life forms or viruses is actually pretty good but we will likely never know how many.

Crystals break all year long every day. Particularly in the mining process. We are not awash with new diseases.

nothing escaped anywhere. if there even is a virus, it was obviously released as a weapon.

Why bring up Mars... first stage or soft disclosure? we found salt on Red Planet.. it contains life.. we're going to open this energy encased in a crystal of unknown composition...

I've always been fascinated with crystals, since my first magic rocks set as a kid.

Are crystals alive?
