The same thing can be done with Samarium-neodymium, Potassium-argon, Rubidium-strontium, and Uranium-thorium transitions. There is a semi-constant ratio of carbon-14 in the air and ocean as it is constantly being created by cosmic rays.

All life on Earth uses a three-letter code to produce 20 standard amino acids.

Researchers have artificially expanded the genetic code to produce additional amino acids as tools, but all natural life use the same 20 amino acids from our common descent.

I’ve used links to articles in Wikipedia as much as possible because Wiki articles are refined over time with our understanding of the subjectmatter and are less subject to link-rot.
