Petoskey Stone and Sterling Silver Pendant, 54.78 x 34.14mm. This is a one of a kind (ooak) art piece that features a stone like no other anywhere. I personally hand cut the gemstone from rough material and was amazed by what I found. Trapped in the fossil coral that comprises Petoskey stone was what appears to be a meal worm, a fossil in a fossil. I continued cutting being careful to preserve the worm. I then hand forged the metalwork to take advantage of the beauty of this very unique gemstone. In the back of this pendant I've cut out the shape of the state of Michigan. Put this pendant on your favorite chain or use it combined with beads to make a one of a kind necklace. The great thing about Petoskey stone is the neutral color. It goes well with most any outfit.
Petoskey Stones can be found on various beaches in Northern Michigan with many of the most popular being those surrounding Petoskey and Charlevoix. Similar fossil corals occur in a variety of locations, however the name Petoskey stone should only be applied to those from Northern Michigan.
Petoskey stone is a rock and a fossil, often pebble-shaped, that is composed of a fossilized coral, Hexagonaria percarinata. The 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 portion of Michigan's lower peninsula.
