Scientists have just discovered the world's oldest colour and it's a billion-year-old bright pink


According to research from Australia National University, the oldest colours in the geological record have been discovered and they're 1.1 billion-year-old bright pink pigments extracted from rocks deep beneath the Sahara desert in Africa.

The pigments taken from marine black shales of the Taoudeni Basin in Mauritania, West Africa, are more than half a billion years older than previous pigment discoveries.
