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.
This beautiful soft teardrop shaped stone is medium sized. Earrings are 1 5/8" long overall and hang from sterling silver hooks. 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. Each “eye” in the stone was once a living organism, now a beautifully patterned fossil... treasure we hunt on the beach.
