I prefer D.

vast quantities requires the verb are so C and D are out. Of should be included (parallelism) and more is correct.

According to the subject of the main clause, A,B and E should be left out. Between C and D, I choose D. The underlined part of the sentence is modifying the noun period. I think D is better to express the idea that pediod lasted more than half a million years.

Doesn't "years" imply duration? So I wouldn't count it with "more", but it should be "longer".
