Wat je gaat doen

If you’ve ever been to Northern Michigan, you have probably heard of the Petoskey Stone. It is Michigan’s state Stone, and really neat to look at! We can help you train your eye to find them with ease! We will meet at the lakeshore and go on a hunt for Petoskey Stones. Petoskey stones are actually fossilized coral from over 350 million years ago during the Devonian period when Michigan was covered by warm sea water. Over time the continents shifted from then, Michigan being near the equator to where Michigan now lies in the middle of the fresh water Great Lakes. When you find a Petoskey stone you hold in your hand a fossil of colonial coral which predates humans by about 300 million years. We will teach you how to spot these special stones- both wet and dry- along with many other fossils found in our area. Every guest will go home with at least one Petoskey Stone, as well as instructions on how to polish them. Join us for some rock- picking fun!

I have lived in Northern Michigan my whole life, and have been hunting for these elusive stones for about 40 years. I have learned how to train my eye to see the Petoskey stone pattern, and I can help you do the same! After this experience, you’ll be finding them everywhere!

Heather knows everything there is to know about petosky stones - she’s got books with pictures and great examples of stones to share. She has a great eye and all the gear you need for beachcombing. Found tons of lovely stones together. Highly recommend!

Heather is very knowledgeable about the area and how to find petosky stones and other super cool rocks along the shore. I walked away with some incredible finds all thanks to Heather!

Heather was super nice and has an eagle eye! This was a great morning date activity before my girlfriend and I headed up to M119 for a weekend drive. Thanks so much!

Heather is the best... she definitely has a great eye for spotting Petoskey stones... she found one as soon as we got to the beach! Her husband helped too & his eye is just as keen... left with a sand bucket full of stones... definitely recommend this experience!

Heather has been gathering “stones” for long long time. In addition to some general background about these stones she gave us some great information about polishing Petosky stones. She promised we would each find a stone and she over delivered. We each found multiple stones plus a few bonus Charlevoix Stones. We were blessed with great fall weather. Sunny and almost no waves. If you wish to find your own Petosky Stone make sure you spend time with Heather.

Heather was great at helping us find all different types of stones and at explaining what they are.
