The Statherian (pron.: /stəˈθɪəriən/Greekstatheros, meaning "stable, firm") is the final geologic period in the Paleoproterozoic era and lasted from 1800 Mya to 1600 Mya (million years ago). Instead of being based on stratigraphy, these dates are defined chronometrically.

The Statherian is divided into three epochs, the Ferminian, the Kahikolan, and the Houilan.

The period is characterized on most continents by either new platforms or final cratonization of fold belts.
