Petosky Stones

While on our trip we came across a lot of things made of stone. There were porches, fences, birdbathes, just about anything. So I asked someone about all the stone. I thought they were just using their natural resorces. The shores were filled with these types of rocks. But I guess they are a certain type called PETOSKY.

On the internet they explain them like this, "This interesting stone is a variety of Calcite and was formed by the fossilization of the coral Hexagonaria."

When polished they look real neat. Most of the things we saw were just the plain stone.

Have a good weekend.
