The Most Beautiful Lake Michigan Stone Ever Found!

It was an incredible hot March day of 83 degrees today. I took my daughter to Van Buren State Park on Lake Michigan today to walk up and down the beach. The landscape had changed a bit since last fall and a lot of new rocks had washed up on shore in new spots. Much closer to the main entrance this year. I did not have to go far to find the first Petoskey of the season. We stayed about an hour or so and the last rock I found was by wading in about two feet of water. I thought it was one of the many bricks in the water at first until I picked it up. It was the bright orange color that caught my eye. I have never seen anything remotely looking like this rock before. I think it is amazing and would really like to know what it is. The orange color of the crystals are stunning. It doesn’t appear to be an agate material at all more of a quartz I would guess. Please drop a comment or send me an email if you know what it is! I believe it to be the most beautiful Lake Michigan Stone ever found! (by me at least… :) )
