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?
