The zircon, pictured here, is from the Jack Hills region of Australia and is now confirmed to be the oldest bit of the Earth's crust. Credit: Image courtesy of John W. Valley

This Little Gem Is the Oldest Piece of the Earth We’ve Ever Found | Smart News | Smithsonian. "This tiny piece of early Earth, a piece of the mineral zircon, dates to 4.374 billion years ago. In the scheme of cosmic time, that's not so long after the planet was born, roughly 4.56 billion years ago. This piece comes from the Jack Hills, an inland range north of Perth, in western Australia." Looks like the inside of a cold, British Cathedral.
Rock around the clock: zircon crystal is oldest piece of Earth. Scientists using two different age-determining techniques have shown that a tiny zircon crystal found on a sheep ranch in western Australia is the oldest known piece of our planet, dating to 4.4 billion years ago.
