Kevin Gauthier of the Korner Gem, Traverse City, MI makes the most of the natural beauty of Petoskey stones. He has been collecting, polishing, cutting and making gorgeous jewelry out of Michigan stones since he was a boy.
The pendant has an oval stone and a small freshwater pearl, and is 1 3/8” long overall. It hangs from a sterling silver bail which works with most chains or a cord, about 1/8”. No two stones are alike.... and that is part of their charm.
Petoskey stones were a living coral colony millions of years ago, when Michigan was deep under a salt water sea, now a beautifully patterned fossil stone, treasure we hunt on the beach.
