    Natural History & Geology
    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 sub continental 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 were extremely high but since 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 Aravali Craton and the Bundelkand Craton generally found in the interiors of tectonic plates.

    Minerals
    Haryana Aravali ranges, in the west contains basement rocks that are quartzite with chiastolite, the upper layers of quartz porphyry ring dyke, felsite, welded tuff and muscovite biotite granite rocks have commercially nonviable tin, tungsten and copper.

    Human history
    The Aravali Range has been site of three broad stages of human history,
    * early stone age saw the use of flint stones
    * mid-stone age saw the domestication of cattle for agriculture
    * post stone age saw the development of the Kalibangan civilization, 4,000 years old Aahar civilization and 2,800 years old Ganeshwar civilization, Aarayan civilization and Vedic era civilizations.

    Mining - Mining of copper and other metals in the Aravali range dates back to at least 5th century BC

    Flora - The Aravali Range has several forests with a diversity of environment.

    Fauna
    The Aravali Range is rich in wildlife. The first 2017 wildlife survey of 200 square meter area across five districts (Gurgaon, Faridabad, Mewat, Rewari and Mahendergarh) of Haryana found 14 species, including leopards, striped hyena, golden jackal, nilgai, palm civet, wild pig, rhesus macaque, peafowl and Indian crested porcupine
