A beautiful and very unique stone found only in the northern part of the lower peninsula of Michigan. It is composed of the fossilized skeletons of colony coral which lived their lifespan in the warm sea waters that covered Michigan during a period of time, some 350 million years ago. Each small hexagonal chamber of this unique stone is a section containing the prehistoric remains of a salt water marine life.
