The Aravali Range, an eroded stub of ancient mountains, is the oldest range of Fold Mountains in India. The natural history of the Aravali Range dates back to a pre-Indian subcontinental collision with the mainland Eurasian Plate. It is part of the Indian Shield that was formed from a series of cratonic collisions. In ancient times, Aravali was extremely high but have worn down almost completely by millions of years of weathering. The Aravali Range joins two of the ancient earth's crust segments that make up the greater Indian Craton, the Aravalli Craton, and the Bundelkhand Craton generally found in the interiors of tectonic plates.
Haryana Aravali ranges, in the west, contains basement rocks that are quartzite with chiastolite, the upper layers of quartz porphyry ring dyke, felsites, welded tuff, and muscovite bitite granite rocks have commercially nonviable tin, tungsten, and copper.
> The Aravali Range has been the site of three broad stages of human history,
> early stone age saw the use of flintstones
> mid-stone age saw the domestication of cattle for agriculture
Post stone age saw the development of the Kalibangan civilization, 4,000 years old Ahar civilization and 2,800 years old Ganeshwar civilization, Aarayan civilization and Vedic era civilizations.
