Age is relative

I had a quick look at myself and, given one or two that may not be there naturally or at all, I found elements -

There's antimony, arsenic, aluminum, selenium,

And hydrogen and oxygen and nitrogen and rhenium,

And nickel, neodymium, neptunium, germanium,

And iron, americium, ruthenium, uranium,

Europium, zirconium, lutetium, vanadium,

And lanthanum and osmium and astatine and radium,

And gold, protactinium and indium and gallium,

And iodine and thorium and thulium and thallium ...

And (nearly) all were formed from the pre-solar system ... The scientists' rock may be old, but I'm just as old!
