"Petoskey Stone" cleanup?

Recommended Posts

Kevinowski

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!

Simply pluck them off with some tweezers or pick them with a needle, should come off rather easy and I don’t suspect it will break the coral.

You say you dont want to polish it.  I would just leave it as is.

Hello, and a very warm welcome to TFF from Morocco. :)

The stones could be fairly easily removed with a bit of gentle persuasion, I should think, as WhodamanHD suggested, but I'd probably leave it like RJB.

Welcome to TFF!

You should be able to clean the piece with a stiff (non metal) brush and water.

Nice find for You Daughter.

I'd use a toothbrush and water. Petoskys are a hard enough stone that you can scrub hard without damaging it.
