Petosky Stone Necklace

what is a Petosky stone?

The Petoskey stone-- is unique to the Great Lakes and can be found along the shores of Michigan’s lower peninsula. 

A Petoskey stone is a rock and a fossil, often pebble-shaped, that is composed of a fossilized coral. Such stones were formed as a result of glaciation, in which sheets of ice plucked stones from the bedrock, grinding off their rough edges and depositing them in the northwestern (and some in the northeastern) portion of Michigan.

In those same areas of Michigan, complete fossilized coral colony heads can be found in the source rocks for the Petosky stones.

The Petosky stones have distinctive mottled pattern of the six-sided coral fossils. 

In 1965, it was named the state stone of Michigan.

This pendant measures 1 inch by 3/4", It hangs from a 18 inch small paper clip sterling silver chain with a lobster clasp.
