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.
Petoskey stones are small ovals, with tiny sterling bead accents. No two stones are alike.... and that is part of their charm.Earrings are 1” long and hang from sterling silver posts shown here; may be ordered on hooks.
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. 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. A bit of history in each stone.
