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.
The turtle pendant is cast sterling with Petoskey stone. A sterling bail is to hang on a chain. It is 3/4" long overall. 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.
