Well thanks to the friendly people at Taogem forum the green stones in the prior post are exactly that, Michigan Greenstones, or Chlorastrolite. They are the official Michigan State gem. They seem to be a rare find and I’m happy to have found them! MICHIGAN GREENSTONE or CHLORASTROLITE

    The patterning looks very similar to a stone I’d seen worn by a co-worker, she didn’t recall it’s name. To learn it’s my state’s gemstone has me dumbfounded! Thanks for sharing, congrats on your lucky find 🙂

    Thank you! I’m as surprised as you are. There was another stone in the original estate group of rocks. It’s a lil larger and shaped like a pea. I just put it with the other stones and thought I would get back to it. After going back and getting the little vials, I just had to post and find out what they were. I’m very pleased with outcome.
