Kevin Gauthier of the Korner Gem, Traverse City, MI has been collecting, polishing, cutting and making gorgeous jewelry out of Michigan stones since he was a boy.
Here is an array of his Pandora Beads carved in Leland blue stone. Bead is 1/2" in diameter. No two stones are alike...with beautiful variations in color... and that is part of their charm. If you like, we can send you images of the beads currently available.
Leland Blue Stone is a beautiful by-product of the old Leland Ironworks which operated from the late 1880s through about 1918 in Leland, MI. Its range of color is gorgeously varied - from purplish indigo to sky blue, turquoise and olive green.
