Petoskey Stone Pendants

Traverse City lapidary artist, John Stoll, has turned his love of rocks into a meaningful endeavor with his Petoskey Stone jewelry. Profits from the sale of his work goes to Life Outreach International and its well drilling efforts in Africa — supplying clean water to entire communities. He and his wife, Jennifer, were recently featured with a profile in our regional newspaper:

Petoskey stones are formed by the fossilization of the ancient coral "Hexagonaria". The honeycomb-patterned stone is found on the beaches of northern Lake Michigan and is also the official Michigan State Stone.

John's pendants are strung on leather with a silver clasp and sell at the gallery for $65. Call for availability: 231-932-0775.
