All you are a Michigander beach comber, check your Petoskeys because that gray, honeycomb-patterned rock you picked up may not be a Petoskey stone. It could be a Charlevoix stone. A type of fossilized coral that’s similar to Michigan’s official state stone, the Petoskey. The two are sometimes confused and its easy to see why. Both have honeycomb patterns and are found in the same areas around Michigan. Like the Petoskey stone, the Charlevoix stone is a remnant from the ancient period of Earths history when the land that we now call Michigan sat at the bottom of a shallow sea. But the creature that eventually gave us the Charlevoix stone fossil was different than that of the Petoskey and it lived for a much longer time. You can see how much smaller the pattern is on the Charlevoix stones. -WET pic.-(8 oz.)
