Found in your yard from 1995? No? In that case I'm guessing China from about 3 million years ago.

LOL! If no one answers by Wednesday go ahead and blurt out the answer. I want to do a new Trivia question each week on Wednesdays Smiling Tinkerweed, I do not recognize your nickname. Did you come over from DG? Do we know you? If not, would love to get to know you better. Please tell us a little about yourself, and welcome to Cubits :)

The slate deposit was found in Florissant, Colorado, and is estimated to be 35 million years old.
