Chemistry is the scientific discipline involved with compounds composed of atoms, ie elements, and molecules, ie combinations of atoms: their composition, structure, properties, behavior and the changes they undergo during a reaction with other compounds chemistry addresses topics such as how atoms and molecules interact via chemical bonds to form new chemical compounds. A summary of earth's history the vast unit of time known as the precambrian started with the origin of the earth about 45 billion years ago and ended 570 million years ago largely thought to be a hot, steaming, and forbidding landscape, the primitive crust of the newly condensed planet continued to cool.
In reality, however, even if you are looking at rocks on earth, determining the exact chemical composition of a substance involves significant time preparing the sample and sophisticated laboratory equipment (and often significant money.
