Geology: background information
In 2004, the geological atlas of Switzerland added page 107, the Matterhorn map. In it, reference is made to the peak of the Matterhorn consisting of African rock and marine deposits/sediments. That may appear odd, but is easily explained by scientists. The reason for this is the collision of the European and African continental plates causing the Alps to begin their formation around 45 million years ago.
