A place in S. China which have yielded amazingly detailed fossils of animal embryos (and some adult forms) from before the time of the Cambrian explosion (of hard body fossils of early animals (zoology's big bang)), and before the preceding Edicarian fauna (some largish soft body fossils often growing on a cyanobacterial mat) maybe mined for phosphate, which would destroy it.

These fossils provide geological evidence (along with molecular studies) for an origin of animals prior to the Cambrian/Edicarian times. And they're cool.
