Formed from once living six-sided marine corallites, Petoskey stones are a fossilized grouping of their exoskeleton structures. These engaging prehistoric corals from Michigan became the state's official stone in 1965. Zuni Pueblo carver Waldo Davis' approximate 2 1/4" long, 2" wide and 3/4" tall jet-eyed Turtle's carapace is extra gorgeous thanks to these ancient coral's natural beauty.
