Stevensite used in AE by Nubian Women

In recent news an exciting discovery in Mars could suggest that there may have been life in the past on the red planet. It is the discovery of a mineral called ‘Stevensite’ on Mars which is also found in some place on Earth. Scientists found that the earliest living organisms on Earth were capable of creating this mineral which has led to the hypothesis that similar microbes were able to do the same on Mars.
This is interesting for us because it has been suggested that ‘Stevensite’ has been used since ancient Egyptian times by Nubian women as a beauty treatment
