Old-Style Petoskey Stone Mountain Lion

By Rosella & Loubert Soseeah

Animal: Mountain Lion, Material: Petoskey Stone
This offering is sold.

Formed from once living six-sided marine corallites, Petoskey stone is a fossilized grouping of their exoskeleton structures. These engaging prehistoric corals from Michigan became the state's official stone in 1965. 

Rosella and Loubert Soseeah selected an exceptional Petoskey stone to carve their old-style Mountain lion (cougar, puma or panther) with turquoise eyes. It's called old-style because in time's past, carvers presented these feline's long tails up and over their backsides.

An elegantly worked abalone point along with melon shell, golden amber, red coral and turquoise beads compose the side offering bundle, thanking a mountain lion for its animal medicine of setting healthy boundaries. These inspiring and to-be-respected felines live this way each and every day, establishing a good example for us. About 3 1/4" long, 1 3/8" wide and 1 3/4" tall.
