  1. "Petoskey Stone" cleanup?

    Hello, all. New to the form and first post. I wanted to share what my daughter found among the wood chips in our neighborhood playground and ask if there's a way to "clean" it up (remove the rocks, etc.) without damage. I believe it is a petoskey stone and I'm not interested in polishing it, as I can purchase polished stones pretty much anywhere here in Michigan. Thanks!

  3. Pink petoskey stone?

    These are a few finds from our last trip to the beach. But I've never seen or heard of a pink petoskey?
  4. Petoskey too hard?

    HI there, I recently found a Petoskey Stone among others on the same tiny (12 foot) beach in Mid/Upper Michigan, as I have for years in the same location. Only...this one's different. I can't seem to polish it down entirely by hand OR with a dremel. It has a lot of beveled structure still compared to others I've seen, and it just feels HARD. There also seem to be tiny crystal bits in some places. Can Pestoskey Stones (limestone as I understand it) harden into Travertine or Marble and retain their distinct pattern and shape?
  5. It is not rounded but weathered. One and 1/2 inch.
  6. Last summer my wife and I took a side trip on our way to Mackinac Island to hunt for Petoskey stones along the shores of Lake Michigan at Little Traverse Bay.Petoskey stones are a fossilized rugose coral, Hexagonaria percarinata, found in the Gravel Point Formation of the Traverse Group from the Devonian era.Glaciers deposited chunks of this coral that were subsequently rounded by wave action. When dry, the stone resembles ordinary limestone but when wet or polished using lapidary techniques, the distinctive mottled pattern of the six-sided coral fossils emerges. I hand polished this piece and had it set in a pendant by a local jeweler. Another form of fossilized corals are also found in the same location,Charlevoix stones.Charlevoix stones are Favosites an extinct kind of tabulate coral. While hunting for Petoskey stones I found this Actinostroma. Apparently these stromatoporoids are common but I thought that this one was a well preserved specimen.
  7. Michigan devonian shell

    I found this while looking for petoskey stones near Traverse city, and I am curious about what it might be.
  8. Shark tooth in Lake Michigan

    Hey everyone! I was exploring a private beach next to a graveyard in Petoskey, Mi. I mostly found regular Petoskey stones but I ran across afew things I found unusual. [1st & 2nd picture] I'm almost positive this is a shark tooth. [4th picture] the dark stone I'm also unsure of. Let me know what you guys think! Thank you so much. James Carden Here's another look at the same stone dry: Larger picture of everything I found:
