PRODUCT STORY
Alyssa says: I have spent many beach days in Michigan walking up and down the shorelines in search for Petoskey Stones. These fascinating stones are rocks and fossils. They are composed of a fossilized coral called hexagonaria percarinata. In 1965 the unique stone became Michigan's State stone, making the stone a true symbol of Michiganders. The best place to find Petoskey stones are along the beach in Petoskey, MI.

I have taken a picture of the beautiful sunset sky across the water in Petoskey, MI, and have hand written facts and information about the stone over the image. In my design I have also illustrated the original Ottawa Indian story of where the name Petoskey comes from. Ever since I was a little girl I have been fascinated by Petoskey stones and hunt for more every summer. The Petoskey stone is a reminder to me of how lucky I am to call Michigan my home.

Having passion for a specific piece of nature and transferring that love into an art piece is quite inspiring. What do you think of Alyssa's Stone Infograph?

Interesting concept but too site-specific to sell well.

It doesn't seem too creative just a template over a average beach scene.

I remember collecting Petoskey Stones as a child. I would purchase this work for sentimental reasons, or if I can ever afford that dream vacation home on Mission Point. This should sell well in a NW MI gift shop.
