Petoskey Stone is a rock of fossilized coral. Dry stones look like limestone but polishing brings out a mottled pattern of six-sided coral fossils. Petoskey comes from the name of the 19th century Ottawa Indian chief Petosega, a fur trader who live on the shores of Lake Michigan. The town of Petoskey, Michigan is named after the chief and the shores of Lake Michigan are a prime source of Petoskey stone. In 1965, it was named the state stone of Michigan. Some believe that the eye configurations on Petoskey Stone enhance psychic awareness, and help you tune in to your emotions and creative abilities.. Read about stones.
