The pigments are fossilised molecules of chlorophyll produced by sea organisms, n scientists said. Researchers ground shale rocks into powder to extract the pigment. "Imagine you could find a fossilised dinosaur skin that still has its original colour, green or blue... that is exactly the type of discovery that we've made," Associate Prof Jochen Brocks from the n National University (ANU) told the BBC.

"These are actual molecules, the oldest coloured molecules in the world. "When held against the sunlight, they are actually a neon pink."'Amazing that colour can survive' ANU PhD student, Dr Nur Gueneli, discovered the pigments after running an organic solvent through the powdered roc
