The Archean.
4 billion - 2.5 billion years ago

Let's get the party going.

There's a lot going on, hold your hat....

Baby continents form. Crustal recycling starts. Plate tectonics might also have become a thing. It's not a party without glamour, and the first diamonds are brought to the surface.
