sun rays of promise

Hexagonaria percarinata, or the Petsosky stone (state stone of Michigan) are rounded pebbles or cobbles of fossilized coral that lived in the Devonian period about 350 million years ago when Michigan had a warm inland sea.

A close look at a Petoskey stone reveals the septae, or dividers in each coralite that look like sun rays.

Petoskey, Michigan is a name derived from Chief Ignatius Petosegay of the Ottawa or Odawa Tribe.  In their language, Petosegay, loosely translates to Rising sun, Rays of dawn, or Sun beams of promise.

Petosky stone enriches happiness (Sun, positive, yang) and dispels negativity.
