Gondwana was a supercontinent that existed from about 550 million years ago until the Carboniferous, about 320 million years ago. It was formed by the accretion of several cratons. Eventually, Gondwana became the largest piece of continental crust of the Paleozoic Era. Gondwana formed the Pangaea supercontinent during the Carboniferous. Pangaea began to break up in the Mid-Jurassic to form again Gondwana and Laurussia. Gondwana is the 9th supercontinent.
