Michigan Greenstone History and Facts:
Chlorastrolite also known as Michigan Greenstone, is a green or bluish green stone. It is found in the Keweenaw Peninsula of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and Isle Royale in Lake Superior. Isle Royale is a National Park, and so it is illegal to collect specimens there. It is difficult to identify an unpolished pebble of Greenstone. Most gem quality Greenstones are very small, and it is rare to find one that is larger than a half inch. The largest gem quality stone is in the Smithsonian and measures 1.5 by 3 inches.
- Green StarStone as found especially in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.
- Greenstone or Isle Royale Greenstone and Lake Superior Greenstone.
- Turtle Back is a name sometimes given because of the overall pattern, particularly in polished pieces, which roughly resembles that of a turtle shell.Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chlorastrolite
