The Petoskey Stone in question.
A 93-pound Petoskey stone seized by the DNR two years ago after a rock collector dug it out of Lake Michigan will finally be put on display.
In a report from WXYZ, Tim O'Brien of Copemish, who collects rocks as a hobby, found the stone in September 2015 near Northport, half-buried in Lake Michigan.
He couldn't dislodge it at first, and had to return with a trowel to dig it out. Once he wrenched it free, he had to carry it up more than 100 steps from the beach to his truck.
In December 2015, DNR officers seized it from his home. A state ordinance prohibits anyone from taking more than 25 pounds of rocks or fossils from state land. The Great Lakes' bottom land is state property.
