Dear colleagues,

there is this well-known stromatolite from Bolivia: 
http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Proterozoic_Stromatolites.jpg
which is said to be of Proterozoic age (2.3 billion years).

Does anybody know, if this age is correct? I remember that there are 
some doubts about this, but I am not sure!
And: is there any publication about this occurrence?

Thank you in advance and many greetings,
Michael
