Petoskey Stone - a stone found only here in my beloved Michigan....is a type of fossilized colony coral that lived during the Devonian period about 350 million years ago when Michigan had a warm inland sea. Because of the "eye" type configurations it shows especially when polished, it is said to mystically help stimulate the third eye and psychic awareness. Petoskey Stone is also said to keep mischievous spirits from channeling incorrect information or interfering with one's life. In particular, as far as awareness, Petoskey Stone is said to enhance awareness of the emotions, which can be a boon for dealing with emotional issues. It is also said to clear out negative energies from the aura and the environment. Traditional healing folklore and crystal healing lore purport that Petoskey Stone is helpful for healing Aids, Cancer, CFS, eyes, head, infections, infectious disease, lungs, skeletal system, and tumors of all kinds.
