Whilst there are vestiges of Hadean material preserved as zircons and other xenocrysts in rocks of Archean age, recently, insight into the Hadean-Archean mantle has instead derived from studying small but significant variations present amongst short-lived radiogenic isotopes. 

The half life of the parental isotope in the Hf-W system (8.9 Ma for 182Hf) requires that any heterogeneity that exists, irregardless of the age of the sample ...
