The grey gneiss below, from Melville Peninsula in Nunavut, is about 3 billion years old. It was folded during deformation about 2,6 billions years ago, then intruded by the pink granite on top about 2,5 billion years ago.

That is a nice thing of being a tourist. You can cast your net really big and get the whole picture, from the geology and geography of the area to its inhabitants, and how they adapted to that particular land over the years! And yes you can bring rocks back! :)
